Conservation Volunteers Australia has been working on Fraser Island with different work programs in the last month.
In early July our Naturewise trip went out with seven volunteers and a Team Leader and carried out dingo scat collection for 3 days working alongside QPWS rangers Linda Behrendorff and Jenna Tapply for support and direction. This project will hopefully provide some greater insights into the habits of the dingo population. The team also took some time and enjoyed some of the wonderful sites on the island.
A couple of weeks later a team of international volunteers carried out a project working to save the Pandanus that is being threatened by the Jamella insect near Happy Valley. The team carried out some great work but also had a wonderful time with many whale sightings. We look forward to being back in mid-August to carry out more Jamella work, with more trips planned for later in the year.
