Welcome to the Friends of Cox Scrub Website
Following a survey of kangaroo numbers by Ben Simon, (Senior Project Officer, GWLAP), which indicated substantial numbers of our furry friends, it has been decided that our time and effort would be wasted planting at Bullock Hill Conservation Park until a better strategy can be devised. Therefore, our planned planting day for 13 July 2014 has been changed to a Bandicoot follow up day at Cox Scrub. We are holding the training day on Wednesday 9 July so anyone who is interested but can't attend on the Wednesday can catch up with the details on the Sunday and put our training into practice. Meet at the Cox Scrub car park at 10.00am. Wear suitable attire including sturdy shoes, hat, gloves etc. Bring a chair and a cuppa.

Re scheduled, details to come:
Luke Price, the Threatened Fauna Ecologist for the AMLR region is planning some remote camera surveys to look for Southern Brown Bandicoots in Cox Scrub CP and Bullock Hill CP. He is planning to carry out the surveys in the next couple of months and has invited our group to participate.
To facilitate this activity a training day on 9 July 2014 (camera set up, monitoring, etc.) for volunteers has been organised. Meet at Cox Scrub car park, 9.30am.
Local knowledge of the park and previous sightings of Southern Brown Bandicoot would be extremely valuable and helpful for his work.
