Last week I attended the Golden Gecko Awards as part of the Chasing Ghosts project nominated by our project partner BHP. It was a great evening catching up with many like-minded consultants and resources professionals. Even more satisfying was our Ghost Bat project being awarded the Golden Gecko for 2018. It is very satisfying to play such an integral role in a project like this, which continues to grow with other resource companies becoming more interested in what we are doing. Congratulations to BHP and all the other partners.

Tali and Damian have made a really interesting find this year on Hamelin Station Reserve, the Short-tailed pygmy monitor (Varanus brevicauda). This is the first time that these tiny goannas, which are actually the world’s second smallest monitor lizard, have been recorded at Hamelin Station Reserve. In fact, official records only show these goannas occurring a fair distance north of Hamelin Station, so this represents a range extension for the species. Great work!

We have just sent two of our zoologists to Hamelin Station to help Bush Heritage Australia with their annual small animal monitoring. Senior Zoologist Tali Moyle and Zoologist Damian Lettoof are at Hamelin Station for the next 8 days trapping and recording the reserve’s little critters. Further blog posts will follow as the survey is undertaken. Stay tuned!
