There is no March Muster this year as we have the state wide celebration of the 20th anniversary of Wildcare. Freycinet National Park has been chosen as the venue to host this event for all the Wildcare Branches. We need a number of volunteers to help set up and support this event.
Field Trip East Risdon State Reserve
East Risdon State Reserve supports key populations for each of the cited target species. The species occur in dry sclerophyll communities that are adapted to a relatively frequent fire frequency (intervals of say 8 to 25 years), but we have little solid information as to their post-fire response. The Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife Service undertook a fuel reduction burn in the northern parts of the reserve in March 2018, which has provided us with an excellent opportunity to get a better handle on each of the species, and so better inform future fire management in the reserve and elsewhere. We will be working under the direction of Oberon Carter, Senior Conservation Management Officer with DPIPWE’sThreatened Species Section.
