Grazer monitoring

We are counting grazing animal pellets at a number of plots on the Yanakie Isthmus. The counts are used to assess trends in the local grazing animal populations. The data feeds into a long-term project to restore the Coastal Grassy Woodlands on the Isthmus.

The first visit for the season is on Tuesday 9th March. Because it is the first visit, we will be clearing all grazing animal pellets from the plots, so that after an interval of six weeks we can do the first count for the season.

Please register your attendance in  ParkConnect or phone Bill Hansen on 0417 341 504.
