April 9 – Jess Lawton, Fabulous Phascogales: survival in a modified landscape

If you live in or around Castlemaine, you may have been lucky enough to encounter the elusive Brush-tailed Phascogale, or Tuan.  This medium-sized marsupial has a large, black, bottlebrush tail and is listed as ‘threatened’ in Victoria.  At the CFNC April monthly meeting, Friday April 9 at 7.30pm, we’ll hear from Connecting Country’s Jess Lawton on the biology and ecology of the Brush-tailed Phascogale, her research on the occurrence of this species in a modified environment, and how you can help this threatened species to persist. The meeting will be held by Zoom (details on the back page of the Castlemaine Naturalist, April issue).
