Work to monitor recovery from last November’s devastating fires in the Great Western Woodlands is well underway. Ngadju Rangers have already located and established photo monitoring points at a number of burnt-out malleefowl nest mounds. A simple GPS mapped star picket is set up as the camera base for photos to be taken at regular intervals for the next 10-15-20 years, or however long it takes for leaf litter to build up and enable the return of these marvellous birds.

The photos shows David Graham and Eric Wilson establishing photo point M4.
