Science: surveys and research at Bowra

At Bowra, AWC field ecologists undertake more than 2,400 live trap nights each year – plus 20 vegetation surveys, 180 bird surveys (co-ordinated by Birds Queensland) and at least 500 camera trap nights annually - to measure a suite of ecological health indicators including:

  • The diversity and abundance of key faunal groups such as small mammals, woodland birds and ground-dwelling reptiles.
  • The significance of threats such as fire, feral herbivore density and weed occupancy.
