The UGLN recently hosted seven Japanese Environmental Policy students who were spending ten days visiting Victoria.
Accompanied by Prof. Toshio Kuwako from Tokyo Technological University, Prof. Mick Seigal and Dr Kazuki Kagohashi, the students enjoyed visiting several different environmental sites.
One of those sites was the Yea Wetlands. Given a tour of the Wetlands by Facilitators Judy Watts and Chris Cobern, we spoke of the role of the Landcare Facilitator in Australia. There have been several nest boxes installed at the Wetlands by Chris Cobern and on inspection of some of the nest boxes by remote camera, the students were fortunate enough to see a brushtail possum sleeping in one of the boxes.
The party then continued on to the property of Terry and Janet Hubbard to enjoy afternoon tea and tour the property to view the Biodiversity project of which encompasses several properties in Strath Creek.
