Western Shield fauna biology
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
Back from the brink - scientific techniques to re-establish native animals
Western Shield is one of the biggest wildlife conservation programs ever undertaken in Australia and aims to return the balance and mix of native animals in selected
areas of WA's environment to levels comparable to pre-European settlement. Learn about the management of introduced animals and how native species are being re-established under the Western Shield program. Discover the process required to eradicate ferals and re-introduce natives. Investigate and compare a range of invasive and non-invasive fauna monitoring techniques that
help determine if the program is achieving its goals.
