What happens in the Wombat Forest when nobody is looking?
Ever wanted to know what goes on in the Wombat Forest when the critters that call it home think nobody’s looking? Well here’s your chance to find out!
Come along to our Caught on Camera Community Day to learn more. The day will involve:
Our Caught on Camera project has been running for four years now in the Wombat State Forest. As a Caught on Camera volunteer, you’ll use motion-sensing cameras to monitor the effects of fire on mammals.
The Wombat State Forest covers about 45,000 hectares and is one of Central Victoria’s most important forests. It is a regional habitat link, providing crucial habitat for the movement of species across the landscape. The forest is home to several species of threatened animals.
In past years our cameras have recorded the threatened Brush-tailed Phascogale - an exciting and unexpected outcome of the project.
Already the project has resulted in a report and a fantastic community guide to the mammals of Wombat State Forest (VNPA reports).
Come along to our Community Day if you would like to learn more or become a volunteer!
Where: Trentham Neighbourhood Centre, High Street, Trentham and Wombat State Forest.
When: Sunday 20 March 2016, 10am-2.30pm.
This is a free event and lunch will be proved by the VNPA.
The training you receive at our Community Day will prepare you for a busy year ahead, with regular monitoring days (Sundays) planned throughout April to July.
We’ll be collecting cameras and moving them on to the next location, and need all the help we can get!
