Bandicoots Ahoy!!

Description: 
Survey techniques and capture and release methods for small mammals and vertebrates.

The Wonthaggi Coastal Heathland, southeast of Melbourne, supports many native species of rare and threatened plants, as well as animals such as the Southern Brown Bandicoot and the White-Footed Dunnart.

As part of RMIT's commitment to experiential learning, RMIT University lecturers Nevil Schultz and Peter Homan, with the assistance of local experts, lead students through a week of surveys on this unique heathland reserve, applying professional survey techniques and methods for the capture and release of small mammals and other vertebrates.
