The King Parrot Creek valley is a regular spot for both formal and informal fauna monitoring and Landcare members have the opportunity to get involved.
Spotlight walks are run regularly during the warmer months, particularly in places such as Coonans Reserve. In addition, as part of the Focus on Fauna initiative remote sensing cameras and sound recorders have been used on properties to identify what fauna live there, night and day. Check out the Focus on Fauna website to see some of the findings made with these cameras.
Members can participate in activities such as bird surveys or the annual check of the Macquarie Perch populations in the King Parrot Creek , run by DEPI’s wildlife research branch at the Arthur Rylah Institute.
