NGT out and about in April: Photos from the field

In Mount Gambier the NGT nursery has been a hive of activity getting plants ready for the winter planting season. In the photo above, Sue and Angela are busily tending to the growing of some Poa and Cyperus Gymnocaulos (Aboriginal Native Basket Weaving grass).

NGT aquatic ecologist Scott Huntley was in Balranald in NSW a couple of weeks ago, and saw quite a few Southern Bell Frogs, but also spotted some hungry Red-bellied Black Snakes chasing them around! Watch-out frogs!

At Currency Creek, south of Adelaide in SA, NGT senior aquatic ecologist Sylvia has been doing some fish surveys. They found native Common Galaxias and Southern Pygmy Perch.

In the shadow of Gariwerd (the Grampians National Park) NGT’s Melissa and Lachie were lucky enough to have this amazing scenery to look at whilst doing survey transects of the Wannon floodplain. What a view!
