Biological Survey


In November 2008, a nine-day intensive survey of mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs was conducted in the Reserve.

The survey was designed to sample each of the 14 vegetation communities. The combined labour of 44 Friends and others resulted in 2,800 trap/nights and 170 hours of targeted searches.
