Aprasia update

The Landscape-Species Conservation project pertaining to Aprasia parapulchella conservation in the Googong-Burra region of New South Wales is in its final year of on-ground delivery. With our species absence-presence surveys completed, we are now undertaking final Land For Wildlife assessments on participating landholdings to measure changes to habitat augmentation made across the span of the project. There is also to be some erosion control work underway inside the Googong township sanctuary site, adding a chain of 'frog ponds' in the partially dried spring fed creek to better equip the landscape for rain events and drought. 

This project has been supported by the New South Wales Government’s Saving our  Species program through its Office of Environment and Heritage.

This project is co-funded by Googong Township Pty Ltd

Woodland Birds on TSRs update

As part of our final monitoring phase, local ecologists were recruited to conduct monitoring in TSRs. Experts in botany and ornithology conducted our final Rapid Biodiversity Assessment Method (BAM) surveys on flora biodiversity and bird surveys in September 2023 with exciting results: Scarlet Robins were identified at two of the target TSR’s, including a breeding pair using one of the projects planted ‘stepping-stone’ enclosuresAdditional ad hoc surveys were then conducted in June, recording both Scarlet Robins and a Speckled Warbler. The long history of the project’s dataset is of such significance that a local ecologist is undertaking data analysis toward a potential research paper. The paper, on the significance of reserves that contain natural grassland or grassland-woodland mosaic to native woodland bird species, is due to be released later in 2024 and will expand the project’s legacy into the future. 

The program is being funded by the NSW Government through a partnership between the Saving our Species program and the Environmental Trust.
