Here's a malleefowl pair displaying to each other at the mound. This behaviour can be quite elaborate and makes for some great photographs. ⁠

Dr Joe Benshemesh running a training sessions for our volunteers on how to service our camera traps. Cameras provide a wealth of data for our monitoring program, but someone needs to head out bush to keep their batteries and SD cards topped up. We're lucky to have a great team of volunteers to help with this.⁠

Pigs are another feral animal that turns up in our camera trap images. They cause a lot of damage to mounds in some locations, raiding them and eating eggs. Controlling pigs is one management action that is used to help malleefowl in some places. ⁠
