Restoring rocky habitat on farms
On a farm near Young, NSW, PHD student Jackie O’Sullivan from The Australian National University has been investigating the impact of scattered rocks on reptile diversity. For landholder Sam Johnson from Boxgum Grazing, looking after natural assets on his farm is all part of managing an ecologically functioning farm system.
In this video, Professor David Lindenmayer from Sustainable Farms also explains how protecting rocky outcrops can be an easy way to enhance biodiversity on farms. This video was produced in conjunction with the Threatened Species Recovery Hub.
