On an annual basis, and more frequently when needed, ORC will provide information on rainfall and other climate parameters, vegetation production, land cover and use, the occurrence of bush fires, groundwater levels and qualities, fences and other barriers, the numbers and distribution of large mammals, and changes in land ownership and management.
