A program initiated by Wangaratta Landcare and Sustainability Inc (WLS Inc) has removed tonnes of carp from the lower Ovens River in the past six years.

The work has been delivered in partnership with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research (ARI) and the North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA).


Study finds Mountain Pygmy-possum eats variety of food, Bogong moth remains key

A study commissioned by the North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) has found the threatened Mountain Pygmy-possum consumes a wide variety of plants and insects during its breeding season and its diet is not confined to the Bogong moth.

The study found the Bogong moth continues to be a key dietary item for the possum during its breeding season and in the rearing of its pouch young. It aimed to determine how important the moths and other food sources are to the possum’s diet throughout the remainder of the year.
