The aim of this survey was to conduct flora and fauna surveys on the Apsey property (15km north of Inglewood), an 8,000 ha site which has been purchased by the State Government as a future National Park. Our goal was to highlight the conservation values of the property and build the case for its gazettal. The focus of the May survey was birds (especially honeyeaters, but other species as well) and developing a flora list for the site.
