This fauna spotter project was conducted on several acres of a predominately wet site, consisting of Melaleuca swamp and isolated very large Scribbly Eucalyptus trees. The aim of which was to safely, slowly and proficiently lower hollow bearing Eucalypts without causing impact damage to fauna inhabiting the trees.
Several large Lace Monitors, Pacific Black Duck egg relocation to specialist carers, venomous snake relocation, fossorial reptile relocation, Amphibian location and relocation in addition toMarsupial relocation was required.
Extreme conditions such as swamps create potential hazardous conditions for fauna spotters as a direct result of the uneven footing. Traversing Melon hole laden areas in the attempt to identify and locate v small frogs was difficult yet rewarding knowing that the significance in maintaining a frog population was invaluable.
