Rock Wallaby Workshop

— by Chris Watson

“See ya ’round!”

On Saturday the Land for Wildlife Rock Wallaby and Habitat Regeneration workshop was held at Olive Pink Botanic Gardens. The weather turned on a ripper of a morning for us, and the workshop was well attended with 22 folks showing up, including new and old members alike.

After a slightly late kick-off, the workshop went well with Clare Ciechanowicz delivering a biological summary of the Black-footed Rock Wallaby and fielding many questions about these fascinating marsupials and their habits around Alice Springs.

Following Clare’s lead, the coordinators stepped in to deliver the rest of the presentation centering on the rehabilitation of rock wallaby habitat.

If you missed out on this workshop, never fear! Stay tuned for details on the next workshop Land for Wildlife will be running in October as part of Red Centre Bird Week on Birdwatching Basics.
