The Bandicoot Superhighway project
This event will occur at the Plympton Community Centre, with virtual attendance also (using Zoom communications software)
Danny Rohrlach began working in environmental restoration in 1998 and established his own business, Minimal Disturbance Bushcare, in 2007. Having grown to having a staff of 10, Minimal Disturbance Bushcare supplies bush-care and biodiversity services for a range of private and government clients.
Danny is also President of the Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare Group (SURLG). He worked with volunteers in this group to establish the Olibel project, in 2012, to protect and enhance habitat for bandicoots and biodiversity in the local area between Mark Oliphant Conservation Park and Belair National Park. The Olibel concept has grown over time, using the Southern Brown Bandicoot as a “flagship species”
Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare Group has further developed the idea into a Bandicoot Superhighway project, which is the topic for Danny’s presentation.
Danny will talk about this innovative and ambitious project, bringing together community, philanthropy and government in a unique partnership. Protecting our endangered bandicoots through improving and linking natural habitat; revegetation; educational workshops; translocating bandicoots and citizen science.
