Camera Traps – January 2021

Camera Traps - January 2021 accrued 153-cassowaries, 8-dingoes and 282-feral pigs.  Against the cumulative monthly average, cassowary numbers were 237% up, dingoes were 81% down and feral-pigs were 231% up.  Against January 2020, cassowaries were 130%-up, dingoes were even and feral-pig numbers grew by 170%. The recent decision to collect data twice-per-month avoided the chance of a camera's zero-monthly-return, but it also revealed 5-cameras

Data collected across 2020, from the twelve Daintree Rainforest Camera Traps, captured 772-cassowaries from 505 events, 528-dingoes from 217 events and 1,462-feral-pigs from 483 events.  In terms of congregation, for every 2 cassowaries, there were 3-dingoes and 4-feral-pigs snapped and within territorial constraints, cassowaries were significantly more perambulatory than both dingoes and feral-pigs.  Unfortunately, this does not provide reliable data on population comparisons, but

Camera Traps – October 2020

Data collected from the Daintree Rainforest Camera Traps over the month of October 2020, accrued 36-cassowaries, 135-dingoes and 43-feral pigs.  As aggregated percentages, cassowaries were 57% down for the month, dingoes were 474% up and feral-pigs were 34% down.

Daintree River Crossing

Daintree River Crossing (DRC) - Options Assessment Report Response My preference:     Retain a single ferry with drastically improved visitor management, both over the ferry and across the entire area of visitation. Neil Hewett - 14-10-2020 Paramount consideration of this proposal must be given to the treasure it provides almost exclusive access to.  After all, the DRC is gateway to the second-most irreplaceable

Camera Traps – July 2020
