Learn about the locals - South coast local fauna presentation

How well do you know the native fauna in your area? One of the wonderful features of living on the south coast is the diversity and richness of our natural environment. The region, from the escarpment to the coast, is blessed with a variety of ecosystems and native animals that inhabit them including; greater gliders, potoroos, brush-tailed rock-wallabies and a variety of frogs and microbats.

Most of us take comfort in the thought that we have populations of native fauna around us, but how often do we take notice of them as we go about our daily lives?

If you would like to learn more about native species in the area you are encouraged to attend a free local fauna workshop that is being run as part of South East Local Land Services’ Escarpment to Sea Biodiversity project.

The event will be held in Berry on Friday 12 May from 9:30 am – 12:30 pm. Guests will hear talks from:

  • Garry Daly, Fauna Consultant and Ecologist
  • Chad Beranek, PhD Candidate/Wildlife Ecologist
  • Melinda Norton, NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service

The event is free but registrations are essential. Please register with Andrew Britton or on 0408 050 748.
