Great Australian Bight Commonwealth Sea Reserve
Scientist abseil 100m down the Bunda Cliffs at the head of the Great Australian Bight to place satellite tags on a population of threatened Australian Sea lions. The information captured by the devices is loaded into a GIS to be mapped and analysed to show how far the animals travel (and to what depths) to feed while their cubs are on shore. The GIS information is used to help protect the population, with the creation of sea reserves.
Venus Bay Conservation Park
Bilby's are trapped, tagged and released. Data collected from the radio tags is mapped within a GIS to determine the range (area they roam) within the park. The maps and analysis are used to target predator (fox / feral cat) control programs to aid in the recovery of the species.
