Volunteers Needed for Biodiversity Surveys in October

Spencer's Burrowing Frog Opisthodon spenceri.
That's right folks! It's Land for Wildlife biodiversity survey time again and this year promises to be as interesting as ever. The project we have planned will involve 3 nights of trapping at 4 Land for Wildlife properties along Roe Creek - some with excellent Buffel control, and some with extensive Buffel growth. All of the properties around this area have had some interesting mammalian visitors this year so let's see what we find.

We'll start on Sunday the 9th of October and set traps each night through until the Tuesday and finish with our last check on the Wednesday morning. Volunteers with all levels of experience will be needed to help with the setting and checking of Elliot trap lines, pit traps, and funnel traps and the documentation of all that juicy data. Photographers are more than welcome as we will very likely find a few interesting critters along the way.

If you'd like to help out we'd love to hear from you. Give Jesse or Chris a call on 89 555 222 or email
