Water monitoring :
Water analysis from the November run is now available, please follow the link november2016.
Insect monitoring :
The French students are still deploying their insects traps and collecting their data from the field. The sites monitored during this study will be part on our monitoring programme. The data collected will be available on the blog once the study is finished.
This first study is a bench mark that will allow the community to better measure the impact of the restoration programme on several bio indicators or “sentinelles”. The French students will train the community and leave resources on how to carry out the insect monitoring programme in the future. The methodology was designed for community groups with limited knowledge in Entomology, so it is accessible to anybody. For more info, please check our Insect Monitoring tab.
The students have also created Weta houses for ongoing monitoring of this specie. The houses will be installed in different areas and will be checked once a year as part of our invertebrate monitoring programme. Lizards hides will also be installed.
