35 Individuals from five Landcare groups gathered at Jon and Marg Hauser’s farm for a fantastic informative field day last weekend. Robbie Gray from Bass Coast Landcare displayed the last five years of Fauna Monitoring results utilizing infra- red camera traps mainly in and around the Holden proving ground. Robbie also showed the group how to install the cameras to get the best possible results. We had several Landcare members enquire about lending traps to gather data for our BCLN wide Monitoring program. This is a fantastic result and means we can now start to get a broader picture of fauna species present on private land across Bass Coast. Click read more to see the full story.
After Robbie’s great presentation and demonstration the group was amazed by the innovative ways Matt Lee from Uavation analytics was utilizing Drone technology to monitor Koalas as well as Wild dogs in dense bushland. Matt also talked about how drones can be used to map the success of revegetation projects and to work out levels of certain weed species. The technology is only going to get better and less expensive to operate. Matt also gave a flying demonstration with one of his drones on the property and captured some fantastic vision. A big thanks to the Victorian State Governments Threatened Species initiative and Robbie Gray, Matt Lee, Jon and Marg Hauser for hosting the day.
