Bush Heritage supporter Niko spotted this snake near Glenbrook in the Blue Mountains recently and is having trouble identifying it. Do any herpetologists out there have suggestions as to what species it might be?
Bush Heritage is working with the Olkola Land Managers of Cape York as they work to protect the endangered Golden-shouldered Parrot. The parrot is an Olkola totem that they call 'Alwal'. 80% of the Alwal population lives and breeds on Olkola traditional land.

A dollar from each ticket sold for the Australian leg of Flume's World Tour – [ Flumemusic.com Link ] – will go to supporting the rangers'...

Our BRUVS (baited remote underwater video stations) have returned footage from Hamelin Pool, adjacent our Hamelin Reserve & the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, WA.

We intend to continue a monitoring program until 2020. So far we've dropped in 100 stations. Some areas of this hyper saline pool (home to the world's largest assemblage of marine Stromatolites) are very quiet, others are teeming...

What are BRUVS?

We're conducting baseline monitoring of the hyper-saline waters of Hamelin Pool, adjacent our Hamelin Station Reserve & the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, WA.

For this marine nature reserve, sampling techniques that remove organisms are ruled out. Instead, stay tuned for footage from our Baited Remote Underwater Video Stations (BRUVS).

Here's our plan: [ Bit.ly Link ]

Dunnarts are about the size of a mouse & are sometimes mistakenly called 'Marsupial mice'. In fact, they're more like Quolls or Mulgaras. Some of these little carnivores can eat their body weight in a single night!

The Julia Creek Dunnart can be 25cm long but the Hairy-footed Dunnart is so small it lives in burrows made by spiders & bull ants!

There are 19 known species, all found only in...

Scientists Nick Leseberg and James Watson were conducting a field study when the tiny bird suddenly flew out from a...

Can you spy one of the rarest of birds? As night fell on our Pullen Pullen Reserve, a quiet whinnying call was captured from a young Night Parrot fledgling that appeared from a hummock of spinifex.

It was the first fledgling call that’s been recorded in 100 years. University of Qld PhD candidate Nick Leseberg admits it was a privilege to see & record the event, but it was only achieved...

In the Tassie Midlands our Ecologist, Matt Appleby, came across this White Gum with ants just erupting out of the crevices.

It's fairly common this time of year, but here's the fascinating explanation of what's happening: [ Bit.ly Link ]
A small marsupial survey at Naree & Yantabulla Stations, on the inland floodplains of NSW, has recorded a Kultarr for the first time since we bought Naree in 2012.

Data from this survey will help us understand how small marsupials respond to increases in productivity, as we've seen recently with wonderful rains over winter & spring. [ Bit.ly Link ]
