This event follows up on dung beetle surveys on four farms in the Coal River Valley this year. The surveys found healthy populations of two dung beetle species - getting lots of dung buried and playing their part as 'ecosystem engineers'.
The surveys and this field trip are part of Landcare Tasmania's Landscape Restoration Project in the Coal River Valley funded through the State Government’s Landcare Action Grants and supported by the JM Roberts Charitable Trust.
