Young Naturalists Karakamia Nocturnal Tour

15 November, 6:00 pm-8:30 pm

Join us for a visit to the Karakamia Sanctuary for an evening of wildlife spotting and learn about forest ecosystems and the place of native animals in them.

Karakamia Sanctuary is a 275ha piece of land, fenced off against cats and foxes, near Chidlow in the Jarrah forest east of Perth. It is owned and run by the Australian Wildlife Conservancy. With the lack of predators, and the introduction of some native animals from elsewhere in the south-west, there is a far greater density and variety of native mammals in the sanctuary than outside it. It probably represents the state of the bush before European settlement.

On our previous tours we’ve had close encounters with Woylies, Quendas, Tammar Wallabies and Brushtail Possums.

Details of when and where to meet will be provided next week for those attending.

A donation of $20 per adult, $15 concession and $60 per family (2 adults and 2 children) is payable on the night (cash or eftpos).

Places are limited, so please email youngnats@wanaturalists.org.au as soon as you can to reserve a place. 

Please provide the names all adults and children, including the ages of each child, and whether you are a current member of the Naturalists Club.

Please note, the tour is not suitable for children under 7 years of age.
