Earthworms and Dung Beetles - the unseen heroes of our soil

You may not realise it but there is a silent underground army working around the clock to bury dung throughout North East Victoria. 

The Kiewa Catchment Landcare Groups, with support from the North East Regional Landcare Facilitator recently hosted a field day with Dr Graeme Stevenson - a great advocate of dung beetles. 

Dung beetles have great benefits for the environment and help improve soil fertility and soil structure as well as increase the availability of grazing area, increase pasture production, improve water quality and reduce pest species associated with livestock.

For more information, see the attached media release, or go to the RLF Short Video project.
