Spring has arrived early at Uluru and many small mammals and reptiles are emerging from their hibernation after a cold winter.

In preparation for burning and feral control, our fauna surveys are underway and we’re seeing a lot of hairy-footed dunnarts, woni ningaui and lizards. Our team is comparing how ferals and native animals use burned and unburned sites. Our surveys involve trapping and releasing small mammals and reptiles and observing the tracks of predators on specially prepared pad track strips.
