Monitoring

Busy birds in revegetated areas
It's springtime across Gondwana Link, and birds are doing what birds do in spring. Over the past few years there have been very encouraging results coming in from Bush Heritage's Ecological Outcomes Monitoring on restored sites within the Link. Many small bird species are returning to the revegetated areas including the threatened Western Whipbird.

Monitoring – an ongoing job

If we build it will they come?
A major challenge across Gondwana Link is finding the time and resources to evaluate the work done so far and the response of the wildlife. Bush Heritage Australia is showing real leadership with their Ecological Outcomes Monitoring, which is assessing progress on their properties in the Link?s Fitz-Stirling area. Here, ecologist Hugh Pringle is assessing vegetation transects on the replanted section of Chereninup Creek Reserve.

Bush Heritage’s Ecological Outcomes Monitoring
Mal Graham begins the first Ecological Outcomes Monitoring session on Chereninup Reserve. This program is carried out across Australia at most Bush Heritage reserves and is designed to tell us how the bush is faring under our management. At each site a 50 metre transect is set up to monitor changes in the vegetation, soil surface and tree health over time. Birds are surveyed at the same site each spring
