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 grazing animal populations in the vicinity. The data feeds into a lomg-term project to restore the Coastal Grassy Woodlands on the Isthmus.

There are no counts over summer because the native dung beetles break down the animal pellets during the hotter months. The counts will resume in autumn 2021
