Ecologists study rich diversity of the deep takayna/Tarkine rainforest A team of ecologists has returned from a pre-bioblitz survey deep into a remote part of the takayna/Tarkine rainforest. Over the course of several nights, they captured images of the abundant animal life of the forest using camera traps.
One of our favourite clips, an inquisitive currawong pits its wits against the mystery of the camera trap.
An endangered Tasmanian devil makes its way down a forest trail late one evening.
A curious quoll investigates a road embankment a mere 80 metres from the ecologists field camp.
A wombat ambles down to a waterhole of an evening. Living deep in the forests and hills of takayna/Tarkine, this individual appears unnaffected by the mange epidemic sadly afflicting many wombats in Northern Tasmania.
