Dung beetle field day coming to South Gippsland

11 March 2021


DID you know dung beetles are a farmer’s best friend? Dung beetles make soil healthier and more productive. They interrupt parasite life cycles, aerate soil, clean paddocks and reduce the need for fertiliser.

Come to an upcoming free presentation and learn how to help them help you!

The South Gippsland Landcare Network (SGLN) is delivering a free information session on dung beetles at the Toora Community Hall, 23 Gray St, Toora on Wednesday, March 24 from 10am to 2pm.

Russ Barrow from Charles Sturt University, and the Dung Beetle Ecosystem Engineers project will tell us about the benefits of dung beetles to farmers. He will explain how to capture, identify, and relocate dung beetles, and what species we are likely to find in
South Gippsland.
