CONSERVATION IMPACT:
Did you know it only takes 12.5 days for a bandicoot to be born?

Sadly, the Eastern Barred Bandicoot is now considered extinct in Victoria’s wild due to predation and loss of habitat. You will be helping Parks Victoria and Conservation Volunteers save the species from extinction through a number of hands-on conservation activities at Woodlands Historic Park.

This research plays a vital role in helping us reinstate and monitor population numbers of the Eastern Barred Bandicoots at Woodlands Historic Park. Our work as volunteers will principally involve assisting with animal trapping, recording data including weight, gender, and condition of the captured animals, as well as their release back into the wild. Information collected will be critical in informing parks managers about the status of the species at Woodlands and helping them make informed management decisions about future direction and conservation of the EBBs at Woodlands.


ITINERARY: 
6AM arrival, meet our local Conservation Volunteers and Parks Victoria staff who are bringing the bandicoots back from the brink of extinction. Learn about the great work that has been achieved through the  Eastern Barred Bandicoot Recovery Project, then head out into the park and enjoy the morning’s hands-on  wildlife monitoring activities. Help rangers to check traps for animals, record data and release animals back into Woodlands Reserve.
