Science: surveys and research at Karakamia

AWC is the only conservation organisation to measure in a robust scientific manner the ecological health of a network of sanctuaries.  At Karakamia, we undertake more than 1,400 live trap-nights, 40 bird surveys, quarterly spotlight surveys and 8,000 camera trap-nights each year to measure a suite of ecological health indicators including:

  • The abundance of reintroduced and resident mammals including the Woylie, Tammar Wallaby, Quenda, Brushtail Possum and Western Ringtail Possum.
  • The extent of threats from wildfire, feral herbivores, and weeds.
