Unseasonal torrential rains this month caused some unique problems for the Range to Reef flora and fauna teams. Digging in pit traps and then removing them involved an enormous amount of sticky mud and a thorough hosing down back at the house. Luckily waterproof notebooks, field sheets, camera traps and GPSs made it possible to still work in these conditions.
Keeping the fauna team clean was hard work.
Remote cameras (below) can be set up with bait to capture infra-red or daytime images of local fauna.
The rain forest is beautiful when it rains.
Working in a "river" isn't always fun.
