Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) ecologists have made a ground-breaking discovery, using exceptional natural history skills to uncover a Night Parrot population at Kalamurina Wildlife Sanctuary on the north shore of Kata Thandi-Lake Eyre.Read more...
Feral cat and fox control at Kalamurina
We are unable to bait for feral predators on Kalamurina as we have a local population of Dingoes that are an important ecological driver in desert ecosystems. AWC has sponsored a PhD research project on Dingo ecology, movements, habitat use and diet on Kalamurina. This work will provide us with many useful insights into Dingo ecology and their role as an apex predator.
Importantly, AWC is undertaking detailed research across our network of sanctuaries (for example, our work at Mornington and Scotia) to develop more effective, landscape-scale control of feral cats.
