Did you know that koalas found in Gippsland are genetically unique to other populations in Victoria?
The South Gippsland, La Trobe Catchment and Yarram Yarram Landcare Networks are holding a series of workshops over December. Come along and find out how you can become involved in an exciting research project by collecting koala scat (poo) for science. But don’t worry you don’t have to use your hands and the scat has a pleasant eucalyptus smell.
A Monash University team is running a project to map the genetics of Gippsland koalas by analysing their scats. They require scat from all over Gippsland so we’re asking the public if they would like to help out and contribute to our knowledge of Gippsland koalas. The guest presenters will be Faye Wedrowicz from Monash University and Nicole Walsh, Project Officer with the South Gippsland Landcare Network.
At the workshop you will find out how to identify and collect scat, how to recognise favourite koala feeding trees and how your koala sighting can contribute to mapping the distribution of koalas in Gippsland. In addition, there will be a short bush walk to learn how to look for the signs of koala activity.
The workshop will be held on Wednesday the 11th December at the Foster Memorial Hall, 79 Main Street, Foster starting at 6pm. The workshop is free and children are welcome, provided they are accompanied by an adult. A light supper will also be provided. Please RSVP to the South Gippsland Landcare Network on 5662 5759 or firstname.lastname@example.org by the 9th December.
