Is Management the Key?


Managed area

Unmanaged area
same area, same rainfall, same animals, different behaviour, different trends, …

different outcomes…

Snapshots


A good day for it…

Sam Bingham all the way from Denver…

Andrew Storey all the way from Perth…

Human induced erosion…

Humans and animals… 
What roles do these introduced species have?

Sam explains about erosion-problems
in other parts of the world

Watch, wait and react    vs.    watch, anticipate, act…

Introduced mega-fauna… a tool to manage
Australian landscapes?

“ATTENTION!”

On Kachana, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder…

Micro-climate…

Introduction to the fire-experiment

When the first humans arrived in “Australia” this area
would have been covered in forest…

What do we want to see here in 100 years time?

This is exciting! All aboard and let’s go!

New species new problems…

Waiting for bed-rock to be exposed is not an option

At a glance things may look fine…

but a closer look at the top of water-shed
may challenge us…

Many management actions have consequences
that do not meet the eye…

“Vegetation:
an ecological stabiliser or destabiliser?” S. B.

Should we burn it?

Should we re-cycle it?

Who gets the job?

Exotic species: part of the problem or part of the solution?

On Kachana we use animals as a management tool

We use animals to grow grass…

We use animals to stabilise creek-banks…

We even use animals to revitalise hill side forests

Is management a key?
