Western Australian Mammals

February 24, 2016

Jimmy Lamb has sent an excellent guide to finding many of WA’s larger mammals.  Good to see that many of the sites I know are still reliable, and excellent to learn of some new ones too.

Western Australia (2016): Jimmy Lamb’s excellent notes on where to see a wide variety of Western Australia’s larger mammals.
