Potoroo found in Yalmy

The endangered Long-footed Potoroo was captured on film using movement sensing cameras to identify threatened wildlife. Where found, Long-footed Potoroos are to have 150 ha of their forest protected under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act.

The magnificent stand of old growth Mountain Ash in the Yalmy River catchment is earmarked for clearfelling. It supports endangered species. If volunteer groups hadn’t bought and set up the cameras (several thousand dollars worth), it would have been destroyed. The find is currently being assessed by the DSE.
