What is Landcare Fire Recovery?

Upper Goulburn Landcare Network
Since the devastating Black Saturday bushfires of Feb 2009, the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network has been working with landholders and local communities in the Murrindindi and Mitchell Shires to rebuild and rehabilitate the local environment on private property.
This blog presents some of the stories.

Long-nosed Bandicoot video footage

As part of the recent landcare fauna survey weekend on private bushland at Toolangi we captured the following footage of Long-nosed Bandicoots.
Click on the play (>) symbol and wait a few moments for it to load.

  You can certainly see why they are called Long-nosed Bandicoots.

                     The bandicoots long sharp claws are ideal for digging up grubs and worms.

This female looks like she has a pouch full of young.

Fantastic footage by the UGLN team. This footage is concrete evidence that a population of this species exists and encourages people to take real action to protect them.
