Camera nest boxes – update
We’ve got some exciting news about our camera-equipped nest boxes that were built by Thurgoona Men’s Shed and installed around Thurgoona. We’ve had over 200 photos of Squirrel Gliders using the nest boxes so far, and the quality of the images is improving. The project wouldn’t have been possible without a grant from the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, and the Thurgoona Men’s Shed. In particular TMS member John Plummer who has spent countless hours researching and developing the concept to the point where the cameras are capable of producing high quality images enabling easy detection of Squirrel Gliders. Thanks John!
The project isn’t without it’s on-going challenges and technical difficulties, but we are confident that these nestboxes have an valuable role to play in the future monitoring of our threatened Squirrel Gliders.
Below are some early and more recent images, we hope you enjoy them!
