Echidna Survey
Echidna

In 2013, we estimated the number of echidnas we have at North Head to be at least 18 adults (quite a high number for an area of just under 300ha). Using photo survey mapping of echidna sightings, we assessed where they were living as they searched for food or a mate.
Help us repeat this survey.  Beginning in September, visitors to North Head are encouraged (through our newsletter, a brochure distributed through ‘Bandicoot Heaven, the Trust’s Visitor desk, an article in the Trust’s newsletter and distribution to all North Head land managers, and by word of mouth) to let us know of any echidna sightings and record them on camera.

You can lodge your photos, together with the date and location details, by emailing twswombat@iinet.net.au
