With native bushland right on campus, Murdoch University is an ideal location for recording ClimateWatch indicator species such as the endangered Carnaby's Black-Cockatoo, WA Christmas Tree and Cowslip Orchid.
Murdoch Environmental Restoration Group (MERG) and Earthwatch are excited to deliver this new ClimateWatch trail to Murdoch's Perth campus, a location that features important remnant Banksia Woodland habitat that were once prolific across the Swan Coastal Plain.
