Goongerah Environment Centre (GECO) will be running citizen science camps in 2019. The first one will happen in far east Gippsland over the Labour Day weekend in March.

GECO says “Our award winning citizen science program collects data on threatened wildlife and protected rainforest in areas earmarked for logging. The program has successfully stopped logging in thousands of hectares of forest!

You can get involved and help us protect East Gippsland’s forests.

Join us at our Autumn camp on the Labour Day long weekend.

When: Saturday 9 March and running until Monday 11 March.

Where: Camping by the beautiful Brodrib River at the Goongerah camp ground.

You’ll gain skills in wildlife spotlighting, using GPS, rainforest survey techniques and experience some of Victoria’s most spectacular old growth forests.

Many precious forests in East Gippsland are still under threat from logging. We need your help to monitor these forests and prevent the destruction”.
