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.

We held our last count for the year on Tuesday 9th November. From now on the weather is warmer and the native dung beetles will reduce the dung pellets before we can  get to it.

The  next count will be in March or April 2022. We will advise.
