Thylation grant gets more Felixers
Controlling feral animals is a big job that requires a lot of time and effort. Best results are only achieved when you use all the tools at your disposal, and at Arid Recovery the Felixer is one of those tools. Thanks to funding from Thylation, & the Invasive Species Council, Arid Recovery has extra Felixers helping protect the newly reintroduced population of kowaris from feral cats.
Biggest rain in a decade
During the middle of January, we had 119mm of rain which is 75% of our annual average…. in a week! Some of it fell very heavily in intense and spectacular storm fronts. Nathan (Conservation Land Management Officer) and myself,  stationed themselves out at the reserve to respond to the event and check the fences. Leanne (UNSW researcher) and three students were out there as well. It has been 11 years since the last comparable rain event and the single biggest dump in the reserve’s 24-year history.
