Victorian State Emergency Service (VICSES) Bendoc Units newest recruit Roweena Russell otherwise known as
Bella has been a member since December 2014.
Since joining, Bella has undertaken basic training in, communications, safety, knots, planning and equipment with
shining determination.
New cameras capable of capturing colour images at night are helping authorities identify and track the threatened Brush-tailed Rockwallaby in the Snowy River National Park.
Bella said the next course to be completed is the General Rescue Course.
“I joined Bendoc Unit to get some valuable experience working with others in a team. I also thought it would be
a nice addition to my resume and its great fun!”
Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) Senior Biodiversity Officer, Marc Perri said: “The Brush-tailed Rockwallaby is listed as threatened in Victoria, with less than 30 naturally occurring animals in the Snowy River National Park in East Gippsland
and five translocated animals in The Grampians.
After completing her training Bella’s hoping to become a Communications Officer in the Unit, with the support
of the Bendoc team and Unit Controller, John Reed.
“Up until now, monitoring, which includes checking and tagging the animal for health and population numbers, has normally been done
If like Bella you would like to gain some invaluable skills and make a real contribution to your community by

red cameras that recorded a black and white image of this nocturnal animal.”
For further information about volunteering or to register your interest online, visit the VICSES website at
“While these cameras enable the population to be counted, colour imagery has been needed to help identify individual animals from their
coloured tags and fur markings.”
“The new cameras, jointly funded by the Victorian & Commonwealth Governments, use a white light flash to produce a good quality
night photo, providing us with critical missing information for the first time.”
Since the cameras were purchased in 2014 they have been used for two monitoring sessions. The cameras are placed in the field for
three weeks at 24 locations in the Snowy River National Park. A lure of lucerne hay is placed in front of the camera to attract the wallabies and photos are taken while they are busy eating or sniffing at the hay.
Rena Gaborov of Wildlife Unlimited said the information collected has been better than expected: “The quality of the colour images is
excellent—out of thousands of photos taken we have very few where we cant identify the animal.”
“This means that the tagged animals can be identified and we are better able to determine the sex of untagged animals, collect information about pouch young and young at foot as well ass see some really interesting social behaviour.”
“The opportunity to use these new cameras means we can still collect important information to help us make management decisions
while reducing the impacts on Brush-tailed Rock0wallabies from frequent trapping and handling.”
