What we’re doing
On purchase our initial focus was to remove sheep and goats, decommission water points, and repair infrastructure. After this, fauna and flora surveys have helped provide baseline information for conservation management planning.
Remote sensor cameras have recorded Malleefowl, Bush Stone Curlew and Spinifex Hopping Mice, suggesting cats and foxes (while also present) haven't had it all their own way. Other species recorded include Echidnas, Mulga Parrots, Bronzewing Pigeons, Emus, Kangaroos, Ravens, Willie Wagtails, Crested Pigeons, Galahs and Crimson Chats.
Small animal monitoring has uncovered many skinks, monitors, blind snakes and even a disorientated Chestnut Quail Thrush, a pretty and usually difficult bird to see.
