Mt Rothwell Biodiversity Interpretation Centre
The dedicated work by volunteeers has enabled Mt Rothwell to support a number of mammal re-introductions. Below is some of their handy work.
This is some of the things we have to deal with at Mt Rothwell
We thank our volunteers for all that they do.
SECRETS TO OUR SUCCESS
The Fence – The 11km fence surrounding Mt Rothwell is key to our success. By removing the threatening processes, the animals have taken care of themselves. The fence is checked every day for any holes, rusting, diggings, and chewed wire, anything that may enable a cat or fox to gain entry into the reserve. It has three electric wires which is monitored by a computer telemetry system that immediately notifies staff if there of any short out of the wires.
Volunteers – The many of the volunteers have worked at Mt Rothwell for 10 years or more. Their contributions have been integral to the success of species introductions, weed control, rabbit control, survey and monitoring activities. The volunteers recently formalised their group and are now known as the Mt Rothwell Landcare Volunteers Inc. They recently won their first grant submission to Communities for Nature (DEPI) funding their project to enhance and restore threatened ecosystems
