The Bass Coast Landcare Network is excited to announce a new project focusing on the Giant Gippsland Earthworm, Megascolides australis.
The Bass Coast Landcare Network will be working with key partners, Trust for Nature, South Gippsland Landcare Network, Beverley Van Praagh from Invert-Eco, Alison Oates from Oates Environmental Consulting, Drift Media and the Gippsland Threatened Species Action Group.
The project will be focusing on protection of the Giant Gippsland Earthworm and increasing knowledge of its habitat and management requirements.
The project will be working with 9 landowners across Southern Gippsland over a total of 88 ha, 34.83 of which will be permanently protected under a Trust For Nature covenant. Other project outputs include fencing, weed management, habitat site mapping, development of planting guidelines, multi media case study developmental and 2 field days.
This is an exciting project and BCLN is privileged to work with all project partners to further understand and protect Southern Gippslands iconic worm.
