By , May 28, 2010 4:32 pm

eagleslfa_samphoto-oct-09 AWS has conducted five field trips to Angas Downs in the last year. Activities involved: training Indigenous Anangu Rangers to track and survey native animals, birds and sand tracks, landscape health assessment techniques such as Landscape Function Analysis, installation and monitoring of photo points and water quality monitoring. Aerial surveys for kangaroo and camel populations were conducted in June 2010 and pitfall trapping for smaller animals and reptiles is planned to occur later in 2010. Australian Wildlife Services understands the advantage of combining science and traditional knowledge to monitor and protect the landscape and wildlife. Listening to what Indigenous people want from their landscape is vital to this. A report summarising field work completed in 2009 has been compiled.
