Fauna Survey of Undertow Bay Foreshore

A fauna survey was undertaken of the Undertow Bay foreshore in Cape Paterson over six days in April 2018. The CPRRA commissioned the survey which was funded through a grant from the Wettenhall Environment Trust and the Bass Coast Shire. Peter Homan Fauna Consultancy undertook the survey.

The site has important habitats for many native animals and is a key section in the habitat corridor between Bunurong Marine National Park and San Remo. Fifty-one native species were recorded: 13 mammals, 3 reptiles, 33 birds and 2 amphibians. Three threatened bird species were recorded.

A summary of the report findings can be found here or you can read the full survey report here. Peter Homan also prepared some Advice on Habitat Management which contains valuable information to consider when undertaking re-vegetation works.
