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 date of the next count is scheduled for Tuesday 28 October. Please register your attendance in  ParkConnect or phone Bill Hansen on 0417 341 504 – but please note that only volunteers living in regional Victoria (with the exception of Shepparton) can attend under current Covid restrictions.
