Twenty nine additional ranger groups, bringing the total to 69, are now undertaking plant and animal surveys, community education and sampling work along our 10,000 km northern coastline to protect us from invasive species such as electric ants, mango pests and bristle worms
Mud crabs will eat small invertebrates like freshwater shrimp, zooplankton, bristle worms
, clams and oysters, but they are just as likely to eat algae, as well as leaf and mangrove detritus.
The artist's last two major bodies of work were somewhat more connected: The 1967 group of works "Elementi naturali" (Elements of Nature) was based on features of the landscape such as rivers, irrigation channels, plowed fields, and seas; the "Ricostruzione della natura" (Reconstruction of Nature), 1968, included bristle worms
made of scouring brushes, and wire-wool sculptures based on objects from Tarzan movies and the comic B.C., such as an animal trap and a rope bridge.
