BDBSA Project Metadata Detail

Survey/Project Number: 684          Total No. of Sites: 0
Survey/Project Name: Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby ground surveys
Abstract: This database includes observations of yellow-footed rock-wallabies either made directly by Peter Copley, or reported to him by other reliable informants, during and soon after a ground survey was undertaken in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The card file includes sites visited where no rock-wallabies or their sign were found. It also records much older reputable records for sites where rock-wallabies no longer occurred. A second stage to this project involved revisits to these initial sites by Mark Lethbridge, Flinders Uni, in the years following.
