After a one-day turnaround in Airlie Beach, we were back on Gloucester Island with a new bunch of volunteers. Rain over the weekend extinguished all remains of the fire freeing us up to tackle more rubber vine control. Many transects were completed traversing the hills of northern Bona Bay, while some of the group cleared the beach areas of Pink Periwinkle which is poisonous to the endangered Proserpine Rock Wallaby.
We were able to set up some motion cameras around suitable habitat for the Proserpine Rock Wallaby capturing a few interesting videos. Conditions at Squally Bay were conducive for snorkeling with many creatures including a Wobbegong Shark and a Moray Eel being spotted amongst the high diversity of corals. We also had a visiting Spotted Python under the table of our camp.
Thanks to everyone for your hard work and great company for the week.
