Project Site Showing Progress June 2018

Fire Recovery and Photo-monitoring

Friends of Tarra-Bulga National Park began a Photo-monitoring project back in 2007 as a way of using images to keep a record of the changes in vegetation in the park, especially in spots that were regenerating or likely to be impacted by disturbance (Such as timber harvesting in land adjacent to the park). The most interesting photo-points in the short term at least have been sites impacted in the 2009 fires. Here is a time-lapse video showing the progress of recovery from a site along  Bulga Park Rd, just South of Balook.  The vegetation type is Wet Forest.
