Corflute is a corrugated polypropylene that is ideal for short to medium-term outdoor use on buildings and fences etc. Corflute safety signs are commonly fixed to timber or chain wire hoarding fences and internal locations around building sites. The corflute used is 5mm thick and has UV resilient digitally printed graphics applied.
There are about 20 different kinds of bandicoot which also includes the bilby.
Bandicoots are nocturnal, so they are active mostly at night and often live on their own, and are roughly the size of a small cat. They have a pointy snout, a humped back, and a thin tail. The pouch on a female bandicoot faces backward like the wombat.
Bandicoots are great little animals to have around. They dig in the soil and forage in fallen leaves which all help the soil and speed up the composting of the leaf litter. They feed on spiders, berries, insects, seeds, and other similar types of food.
How can you help bandicoots on the roads?
* Raise the awareness to drivers in bandicoot areas with signage
* With habitat being fragmented by roads and clearing of habitat, bandicoots need to cross the roads.
* Slow down in bandicoot areas, slower speeds give us more time to see the bandicoot and react to help it get safely off the road.
* Bandicoots are more active at night.
* Scan the road ahead and the sides of the roads for anything that may move in front of your vehicle.
* look for eyeshine - some animals have eyes that shine in the dark like reflectors when light hits them.
* Ask your passenger/s to help you look for wildlife - more eyes looking is better for everyone to safely get to their destinations. You can make a game of it too, who is the first one to spot the wildlife first? Who has the keen eyesight in your vehicle?
