It’s now 10 years since Landcare released 128 dung beetle starter colonies in the Goulburn Broken Catchment, including about 40 colonies in the Strathbogie Ranges region.

If you have stock, particularly cattle or horses, here’s your chance to identify which dung beetles are active on your property.

If you’d like to take part (it’s easy!), please read the flyer and survey guidelines and assist us in determining how well dung beetles have spread in our district. I know your time is precious, but 20-30 mins is all that’s needed. Once you’ve collected your beetles, we can organize identification and let you know the results.

If you have any questions or comments, please get in touch.

You may already have been contacted about this survey. If so, please participate and help us get a better understanding of which dung beetles are active at the moment and where.
