About

Welcome to Focus on Fauna, a wildlife fire-recovery project in the Flowerdale and Strath Creek areas of Victoria.

This project investigated how local fauna had been recovering since the fires of Feb. 7, 2009, Black Saturday. Focus on Fauna is a community project set up by local Landcare groups to survey wildlife on fire-affected private property in parts of the Murrindindi Shire during 2011. The project used remote recording equipment on local properties to obtain a snapshot of which animals were sharing the recovering landscape. The project focused primarily on arboreal mammals, bats, frogs and owls.

As well as remote sensing, the project collected as much information as possible on local fauna and relied heavily on local knowledge to better target the surveys.

If you’ve seen animals or plants of interest in the project area let us know:

This project was conducted by the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network, with financial support from the Recycling for Recovery Program, funded by Grocon Industries. The project was also supported by the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program and by the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority.

Although funding for the project finished in April 2012, the Strath Creek Landcare Group will maintain this website for the foreseeable future and run the home page as a nature blog with stories about wildlife from around the Strath Creek/Flowerdale area.
