FAUNA

The property has participated in several wildlife surveys. It was initially surveyed with the assistance of the Tasmanian Land Conservancy in May and June 2015, through on-site fieldwork and placement of several motion detection cameras. A further study was done in collaboration with the government's Natural Resources Management citizen science program for southern Tasmania, in November 2016. Surveying has continued since. Blue Mountain View holds high conservation values, featuring a variety of rare and unique plant communities and animals.  The photographs and videos below  capture some of the biodiversity inhabiting Blue Mountain View.
