Camera Traps – 2020

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 – December 2020

Data collected from the twelve Daintree Rainforest Camera Traps over the month of December 2020 accrued 74-cassowaries, 107-dingoes and 110-feral pigs.  As aggregated percentages, cassowaries were 115% up for the month, dingoes were 256% up and feral-pigs accrued 90% of the monthly average.  All 12 Camera Traps functioned without fault across the month.

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. Dingo numbers were skewed, because Camera Trap # 10 has clearly taken the interest of a family that made 120-appearances across the month, many meddling

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 – September 2020

Data collected from Daintree Rainforest Camera Traps over the month of September 2020, accrued 62-cassowaries, 22-dingoes and 136-feral pigs.  As aggregated percentages, cassowaries were 5% down for the month, dingoes were 24% up and feral-pigs were even. As I tallied the monthly data, my mind persistently wavered toward the Daintree River Crossing (DRC) – Options Assessment Report, which is currently open for public consultation.

Camera Traps – July 2020

Camera Traps - July 2020 The data collected from Camera Traps over the month of July 2020 was skewed by a couple of camera failings and in one unit a random re-setting of time & date, however, the month's tally accrued 87-cassowaries, 14-dingoes and 120-feral pigs.  As aggregated percentages, cassowaries were 132% up on the monthly average, dingoes were 93% down and

Camera Traps – May 2020

Camera Traps - May 2020 Apart from a brazen Brush Turkey - Alectura lathami (J.E. Gray, 1831), determined not to be excluded from the month's tally, the greatest delight in the data collected from the Camera Traps - May 2020, was the Bennett's Tree Kangaroo - Dendrolagus bennettianus (De Vis, 1887), captured on Camera 9, on 3 May at 2129-hours.  Bennett's tree-kangaroos are
