A recent article in the Warrnambool Standard is helping to spread the word about a new NGT research project, being led by our research ecologist Adam Miller, that will enable us to clarify the genetic status of Brolgas in southern Australia. You can also download a pdf copy of the article here: The Standard – Brolga Article.
However, before we can get started with this important work, we need a hand to help us reach the funding target for the project.
For further details on the project, and how you can help, please follow this link.
You might have noticed that this is the first time NGT has sought donations for a specific project, since we received our tax donation status from the ATO last year. It has taken a little while, but we now have a basic system in place that enables us to receive donations and provide donors with a receipt for their tax return, and we are using this first project as an opportunity for us to learn more about what it means for us to be Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) under Australian taxation law.
Obviously, the good news is that it provides a mechanism for anyone who likes what we do, to directly help support our work. But rest assured, we also don’t want the DGR status to change the fundamental characteristics that have made NGT a success; such as our down-to-earth approach or how we conduct our work.
Some other very exciting projects are in the pipeline, so stay tuned to our blogs for further news to come…
