Results and photographs are now available from the first part of the most recent fauna survey conducted in Plunkett Regional Park by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) rangers.
The survey was conducted after a dry spell dry spell in November 2014 and showed a high diversity of reptiles, but a low diversity of small mammals. This is typical of sandstone areas.
The low diversity of small mammals could also be due to frequent wildfires running in from the western side of the park. There will be a bird survey conducted in late September 2015 by QPWS staff to finish off the survey.
The map above shows the six sites used in the fauna survey.
