Recently, Hannah Bannister, Regional Ecologist with South Coast NRM, presented at the “Giving Our Threatened Species a Chance” workshop at the Manypeaks Hall. 

The workshop was hosted by the Albany and Surrounds Feral Cat Working Group and Oyster Harbour Catchment Group, supported by funding from the State Natural Resource Management Program.

Hannah’s presentation on ‘Feral predators and stochastic events: influences on Ngwayir activity towards the edge of their range,’ shared the research carried out on the habitat of the Western ringtail possum.

The event was a great opportunity for the community to hear about endemic and threatened fauna species that live in Waychinicup National Park, Two Peoples Bay, and the Manypeaks region, along with the significance of the area to the local Aboriginal community.

Information was also presented on managing the impacts of feral cats and foxes to protect the unique and valued wildlife that lives in this beautiful part of the south coast.
