Terrestrial Invertebrate Survey (Training) @ WA Ecology Centre
Nov 23 @ 1:00 pm – Nov 24 @ 12:30 pm

Did you know that terrestrial macroinvertebrates (insects!) are a great indicator for the health of your coastal or bushland environment? Learn new skills to conduct a terrestrial invertebrate study! This free workshop is being led by David and Fleur Knowles from Spineless Wonders. Learn sampling techniques, macrophotography, reporting and identification with our smallest and most diverse creatures.

Perth NRM are pleased to announce the opportunity to learn how to conduct a terrestrial invertebrate study. This workshop is free and will be made available at the WA Ecology Centre at Bold Park, 165 Perry Lakes Drive, City Beach WA 6015.

This workshop is designed for those involved in coastal or bushland management or those wanting to learn technical skills to assist in biodiversity conservation. With support from Coastwest and expert workshop presentation by David and Fleur Knowles from ‘Spineless Wonders’, Perth NRM will make this opportunity available at no cost.

We often say we are rehabilitating the coastal zone to increase biodiversity. This means we increase the diversity of plants in the dunes by planting a diverse array of coastal species, and we hope that this leads to an increase in habitat for terrestrial fauna.

We are lucky that there are many species of reptiles and the occasional mammal and plenty of birds that take advantage of restored dunes. However, terrestrial macroinvertebrates are by far more plentiful and a better indicator of rehabilitation success.

Come along to find out more about Perth’s terrestrial macroinvertebrates, and how monitoring could be incorporated in rehabilitation and conservation activities.

WORKSHOP TIMING

  • On Saturday, arrive at 1.00PM for a 1.30PM start.
  • On Sunday, arrive at 7.30AM for a 8.00AM start.

Please be aware that there will be road closures on the Sunday due to the MS Bike Ride that will affect people driving from the North. Please see the map at the bottom of the page for the best alternative route.
