Geegeela Biodiversity survey results and webinar
The Scientific Expedition Group recently assisted Nature Foundation SA and Nature Glenelg Trust to undertake a biological survey in a new nature reserve in the South East of South Australia. Geegeela Nature Reserve is a 100 acre patch of diverse woodlands, donated to Nature Foundation SA, adjoining the Geegeela Conservation Park, 45 km south of Bordertown. Over the past spring-autumn period, various survey activities occurred culminating with a five day / six night blitz in early May 2021. The survey team camped out at NGT’s nearby Eaglehawk Waterhole among the beautiful surrounds of blue gum and stringybark woodlands, where each evening we heard the calls of the Red-tailed Black Cockatoos as they came in to roost.
During the week-long survey the team caught, observed, and photographed a range of flora and fauna in various habitats using a variety of methods and we’d love to tell you all about it. Please join us as we present our findings in an online webinar next Wednesday, 30th June, from 7pm (SA time). Register for free here.
This project is supported by the Limestone Coast Landscape Board Grassroots grants program, Nature Foundation, and the Scientific Expedition Group.
