Each year, the National Malleefowl Recovery Team monitors approximately 3500 Malleefowl mounds across Australia. Considering the mounds are located in some very remote spots, it represents a massive effort and is only possible with the help of hundreds of volunteers.
But before volunteers can head out into the bush, they have to be shown how to do the job. It involves using equipment to GPS locate Malleefowl mounds and record a number of measurements. It also involves a lot of walking through bush; our volunteers call it bushwalking with a purpose!
The next training session in WA is at Ongerup on October 22nd, see below for more details.
When: Saturday 22nd October, 9.00am
Location: Yongergnow Australian Malleefowl Centre, Jaekel St, Ongerup
