Fauna Movement Solutions
Karawatha Park is a key component of what is known as the Flinders Greenbank Karawatha Corridor, a protected series of interconnected natural vegetation blocks on the southern side of Brisbane. When these vegetation blocks are cut by arterial roads, these can be hazardous and impervious to native fauna. Several research and demonstration projects managed by Griffith University have been instigated over many years to investigate how these arterial roads can be ameliorated to not represent such barriers to fauna movement.
The tour will take participants to the Forest and the Karawatha Discovery Centre and meet members of Karawatha Protection Society. From there short walks will show the aspects of the environment of Karawatha Forest including the established land bridge over Compton Road. Griffith University will provide information gained from many years of observation and research at this unique facility.
The tour will also visit an industrial site where the new Illaweena Street Land bridge is currently in construction. Participants need to wear closed in shoes, long sleeves and long trousers to disembark on the ‘industrial work site’ where the Project manager will explain construction.
Cost: $40 per person (includes transport, morning tea, lunch, water and snacks)
