eDNA_image Every creature leaves traces of their DNA in
their surrounding aquatic or terrestrial environment,
through skin cells, hair, and other bodily secretions.
This is environmental DNA (eDNA).
In spring 2018, Jindivick and Neerm District locals visited 16 dams, collecting 54 eDNA water samples to test for wildlife. Please join us for our autumn 2019 sampling event.

 

The second farm dam eDNA sampling morning is Thursday 4th April 2019, 9.30am – 1pm with lunch Meet at Neerim Sth wetlands at 9.30am sharp. All welcome! Please RSVP by 28th March.
