Marty’s project exploring the effects of artificial light on trophic chains in Eucalyptus woodlands has now received funding from three separate organisations: Holsworth Wildlife Research Endowment (funding the field experimental set up and laboratory processing); Ecological Society of Australia Student Research Award (covering costs of transportation to field sites and sampling equipment) and Field Naturalists Club of Victoria Environment Fund (purchase of Audiomoth bioacoustic recorders). Congrats Marty and massive thanks to three wonderful organisations supporting original research in Australia!
