The Low Isles count team reported 7,454 incoming PIPs during the afternoon count session on 27th. This count only just made it into the month of February after mid-month target date for counting was missed due to very wet conditions.
During the month Low Isles received just over 700mm of rain. This was nearly double the average for February and provided a great boost for island vegetation after a prolonged rain-deficit.
Huge thanks to Low Isles Caretakers Wayne and Jenni and many LIPS volunteers for keeping on counting PIPs, plus so much more! An island cleanup – photo below – followed soon after the PIP count.
