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 1,300 live trap-nights, quarterly spotlight surveys and about 4,500 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, Common Brushtail Possum and Western Ringtail Possum.
- The extent of threats from wildfire, feral herbivores, and weeds.
