Girraween National Park

27 08 2010

Hey everyone,
I just returned from my first field trip to the Australian Bush. We hiked through the giant granite boulders for three days, studying the flora and fauna. The views were stunning and the wildlife was everywhere. This morning, I was greeted by two Kangaroos as I came out of my tent…

During the daytime, we collected data for the national park on Yabby (Crawdad) populations above and below a waterfall, and also measured plant diversity and density in fire regime areas. In the evenings, we had lectures in the Ranger Station on topics from granite formation to wombats. We encountered some unexpected cold, wet weather. It reached 4 degrees Celcius last night.
