for Ku-ring-gai Area" as well as here.
! Most of the habitat areas for the Eastern Pygmy Possum (EPP)
in eastern Australia were burnt by the ferocious climate change
exacerbated wildfires of late 2019-early 2020. We have lost
countless EPPs, making extant unburnt areas of northern Sydney
valuable refuge habitts for EPPs.
for these unburnt areas ! Due to the good rainfall over the
past few months of 2020, we have had an excellent Banksia flowering
season with lots of nectar production. My 2020 resurvey to ascertain
the recovery status of the Eastern Pygmy Possum following the
breaking of the climate change exacerbated drought peaking in
2018 is underway and initial results show that some of the shrinkage
in distribution observed in last year's resurvey has been reversed,
particularly where combined with fox baiting measures. Still
waiting for a measured breeding improvement though anecdotal
evidence suggests it is. This
is only a temporary respite due to the unpredictable, chaotic
occurrence of climate change exacerbated drought and ferocious
wildfire condtions increasing due to increased temperature causing
lower relative humidities in our bushland exacerbated by other
human activities such as MTB trails.
Emergency: If you still have fossil fuel investments, you are
endangering life on this planet including your own. I implore
you to divest immediately. On 16 June 1996, I ran the first
of my 2 community seminar/workshops "Living in the Greenhouse"
focussing on living climate change solutions. I will be publishing
some of these that we came up with as "Climate Actions".
Holland Mouse has recently become locally functionally extinct
in the northern Sydney bushland areas and only survives in NSW
in areas of the lower North Coast now. This parallels local
extinctions noted by Dr Phoebe Burns in Victoria.
