Have you ever driven down a busy highway and noticed a cute little creature scurrying along the side of the road and thought, “I hope he gets to the other side safely!”
No need to worry, the NSW Roads and Maritime Services is all about making sure our furry friends get to where they need to be without getting themselves into any harm.
Come along to the Life in the Park free short talks event on Sunday 28 August and hear Josie Stokes, Biodiversity Officer, educate everyone on what the NSW Roads and Maritime Services does to mitigate the impacts of roads on threatened species such as micro bats, squirrel gliders, koalas and frogs.
Josie will concentrate on the Pacific Highway Upgrade, Princes Highway and Hume Highway and what procedures have been put into effect for the areas these fauna groups roam.
Listen to Josie report on the first recorded crossing through a pipe culvert underpass by a Giant Barred Frog (Mixophyes iteratus) on the Pacific Highway, an exciting set of new data showing the effectiveness and use of pipe culverts by Australian frogs.
Read up on all the wildlife around the Park before this exciting talk now.
