Basalt to Bay use of cameras

A 37km stretch of grassy woodland (plus a couple of other ecological vegetation communities) containing a number of endangered communities and rare flora species along the former Koroit to Minhamite Railway line is part of a local community project. As part of the project the local community groups are using sensor cameras in the Warrong section of the Green Line to see what fauna are present.

Who is involved? Basalt to Bay in partnership with Victrack, Moyne Shire, CFA, La Trobe Uni and adjoining the farmers. Weeds have been a focus but in the future it will  include using fire as a management tool, more weed control and surveys and revegetation with locally sourced seed to add to into adjoining farmland biolinks and connectivity belts. Green Army and other stakeholders will also be involved.
