Project update – Microbats of the Young District
The final stage of Young District Landcare’s microbat project is underway. They are currently organising a second information sign for Burrangong Creek Reserve in Young focussing on the Southern Myotis or Fishing Bat (Myotis macropus). They are soon to publish our Microbats of the Young District booklet (already available on their website) which will be provided to all the schools in the district as part of an educational resource package. They will also be holding a workshop for farmers and landholders on the valuable contributions that microbats make to our farming systems.
Young Landcare Coordinator Mikla Lewis and Steering Committee Member Anne Lemon will be attending the Australasian Bat Society 2018 Conference coming up on 3-6 April. Mikla and Anne have prepared a Microbats of the Young District poster display and factsheet for delegates to learn all about our project.
