- 2014 Woodland Bird Surveys: The Mulligans Flat - Goorooyarro Woodland Experiment team would like to let you know that our annual Woodland Bird Survey are coming up. We will be flagging transects throughout both Mulligans Flat and Goorooyarroo Nature Reserves. These flags will be removed shortly after survey are completed.
- Eastern Bettong Reintroduction Update:Two years after the reintroduction of the Eastern Bettong (Bettongia gaimardi) into Mulligans Flat Sanctuary in Canberra, they are doing really well and the first of the research has been published.
- Health evaluation of free-ranging eastern bettongs (Bettongia gaimardi) during translocation for reintroduction in Australia. Abstract
- Reptile surveys 2014: In March/April this year, we successfully completed our reptile surveys. We found many interesting reptiles and frogs which will add to our research looking at woodland conservation. Thank you to all of the people that helped us
- Bringing forward the benefits of coarse woody debris in ecosystem recovery under different levels of grazing and vegetation density. Research recently published in the journal Biological Conservation has shown that distributing coarse woody debris in particular patterns and places in the landscape, and
in combination with different grazing levels, conservation managers can improve effectiveness of restoration programs. Abstract
