BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 357          Total No. of Sites: 24
Survey/Project Name: Swamp Skink and Nannoscincus maccoyi (Salamander Skink) Distribution and Status
Abstract: The primary aim of this project conducted in 2004, was to determine the current distribution of Egernia coventryi and Nannoscincus maccoyi in the Lower South East of South Australia by undertaking targeted surveys of sites identified as containing potential remnant habitat for both species (i.e. Silky Tea-tree and Cutting Grass habitats).
 
Start Date: 01/02/2004      End Date: 01/11/2004
Survey Type: Vertebrates only
   
Study Area Description: The survey was undertaken at numerous sites predominately in coastal areas from Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park near the Victoria/South Australian border, west to near Kingston in the Lower South East of South Australia. The study area encompassed the currently known distribution of both species in South Australia, as well as the extent of their preferred habitats.
