If you go down to the woods today

Want to know what can be found in the Wombat State Forest?

We've just published an unusual field guide that uses photos taken as part of our NatureWatch monitoring project to show people the sort of creatures they can expect to meet in the Wombat, day or night!

The guide covers all the mammals our trusty volunteers have 'caught on camera' using motion-sensing cameras in the Wombat State Forest.

It's a great way to learn more about the Wombat and the types of creatures you might come across when walking or camping in the area.

 

Eastern Grey Kangaroos gather in mobs to feed in the early morning and at dusk.

The guide also includes interesting facts for each creature. For example, did you know that wombats can defend themselves by crushing the heads of pursuing predators into the roof of their burrow using their rump?

A pretty good reason not to go sticking your head down wombat holes!

You can download the free guide and take it out into the field with you.
