January 23, 2020 On the 16th of January, NGT quietly passed another milestone, marking eight years since we launched the organisation from humble beginnings back in January 2012. We’re recognising this milestone by shining a light on a few timely announcements that really promote our core theme of putting the proven science of ecological restoration into practice.

  • Big NGT news ahead of World Wetlands Day 2020! – Announcing… Green Swamp Restoration Reserve January 23, 2020 To mark the upcoming occasion of World Wetlands Day on the 2nd of February 2020, we have some wonderful news to share publicly for the first time! We’ve worked to restore some pretty amazing wetlands over the past 8 years (for some examples, see the second half of this blog), and it is fair to say that ...
  • New surprises at Green Swamp – some very special birds appear at this important summer refuge habitat January 23, 2020 One of the great joys of wetland restoration comes from the follow up surveys undertaken to monitor the outcomes of on-ground actions. Restoring productive wetlands that are able to hold water through summer and into autumn provides much sought after habitat for birds that are dependent on free standing water. The more permanent wetland elements provide ...
  • NGT bushcare ‘hits the road’ to protect native grasslands! January 23, 2020 In Spring 2019, NGT’s bushcare crew was involved in protecting some of south-west Victoria’s native grasslands, carrying out careful weed control work in important roadside grassland reserves near Dunkeld. With temperate native grasslands being mostly cleared or degraded by past agricultural development, most remnants in the region exist in small reserves; in hard to reach corners ...
  • Wrapping up NGT involvement in Summer By The Sea 2020 January 23, 2020 To beat the summer heat, over 300 ‘cool’ activities have been happening in January across Victoria’s diverse and fascinating coastal and marine environments as part of the ‘Summer By The Sea 2020’ program. This program has now been running in the summer holidays for 25 years, and is a partnership between Coastcare Victoria, Parks Victoria, ...
  • Sowing the seeds for the Mount Gambier Rail Trail project January 23, 2020 The Mount Gambier Rail Trail project is in full swing, with the NGT nursery busy sowing over 30 different plant species for the ‘Year 1’ site. The plants are growing nicely at the moment with final sowing occurring as we speak. We will aim to have around 2,000 plants ready for planting in late June-July ...
  • Thanks to our wonderful supporters, we’ve eliminated the land purchase debt on Walker Swamp! January 23, 2020 Our financial supporters have already heard the good news in a very special update on New Years Eve, but we can now share this story with the rest of our NGT newsletter subscribers… we’ve reached our target for the land purchase component of the Walker Swamp project – one of NGT’s Restoration Reserves. It has been a long ...
  • Understanding drivers of River Red Gum condition at Walker Swamp January 23, 2020 Across the south-west region of Victoria a decline in condition of River Red Gums has been observed, in part by overabundant psyllids. In 2019 many trees were stripped of their foliage by late December. Psyllids are small insects that feed by sucking sap from the tissues of leaves and young plant shoots. Lerp-building psyllids construct ...
  • The story of a Koala on a Cold Tin Roof – An eventful night at Kurrawonga January 23, 2020 Life at Kurrawonga at this time of the year doesn’t provide any dull moments! When the days are long, hot and dry, the waterhole at the front door at Kurrawonga provides 24/7 entertainment and the diversity of day and night-time visitors is fascinating. The regular visits of Tiger Snakes and Copperheads are always announced by ...
  • Are you looking for a last-minute Christmas gift idea? Then look no further than the award winning Walker Swamp! December 19, 2019 It is that time of year where we’ve all had our thinking caps on for Christmas gift ideas… but sometimes (if you are anything like me) we come up short! In my case, the kids are always a lot easier (and of course they have no shortage of suggestions!), but what about our adult friends and ...
