Talk - Koala Habitat Mapping, and Monitoring
AboutWombat Forestcare’s 'You, Me and Biodiversity' program is pleased to have 2 speakers share their knowledge and experience on koala habitat mapping and monitoring, Jackson Cass from Moorabool Landcare and Dave Mitchel from the Australian Koala Foundation.
Jackson will talk about a joint project with the CSIRO, the Wadawurrung Traditional Owners, and the local community as part of the National Koala Monitoring Project. Through this collaborative approach the aim is to fill knowledge gaps for future koala recovery and management efforts.
Dave Mitchell is a landscape ecologist with the Australian Koala Foundation (www.savethekoala.com) and well known for his work in mapping koala habitat across Australia. He is currently completing his PhD on this topic at RMIT. He will share with us some of the mapping work occurring locally and in Victoria.
We hope too that you can be part of these efforts with your koala monitoring!
The presentations will be followed by afternoon tea.
