Grazer monitoring

Are you interested in a day out in the remote and lovely open grasslands area of the northern Prom, identifying, counting and recording animal pellets? The pellet counts are part of a scientific research project to obtain data for estimating the population trends  of native and feral grazing animals on the Yanakie Isthmus in the Prom National Park – all part of the effort to restore the Coastal Grassy Woodland habitat. Volunteers visit the sampling sites to identify, count, record and clear animal pellets. 

Our next visit for 2023 is on Tuesday 9 May and this is the first count for the year.

Subsequent visits are at 6 week intervals. Tentative dates for the rest of the year are 20 June, 1 August, 12 September and 24 October – but these are subject to confirmation.

Please register your attendance in ParkConnect  (where you will also find details of the activity) or phone Bill Hansen on 0417 341 504
