Southern Gulf NRM partnered with McKinlay Shire Council to support the threatened Julia Creek Dunnart. The Citizen Science project was established to record sightings of dunnarts throughout the region. This information will assist research groups to target known populations when conducting extensive survey programs to learn more about the secretive species. 240 people participated in the program including land holders, tourists and the students of the local Julia Creek State School.
Partners: McKinlay Shire Council
