April 20, 2018 After six years of delivering results on the ground, we're demonstrating to our partners, supporters and the wider community that NGT is planning for the future. Inspired by a similar model successfully adopted by the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, who have generously shared their experiences with us, the NGT Foundation...
  • Investing the “Jill Hudson Award” cash prize in the long-term future of NGT April 20, 2018 In late 2016, I was really honoured to be named as the recipient of the Jill Hudson Award for Environmental Protection in SA, which also included a personal cash prize of $1000. Ever since, I have been waiting patiently for the right opportunity to come along to put the prize money towards – and today is that ...
  • A day on the Green Swamp, near Glenthompson April 20, 2018 This week Greg and I had the privilege of hosting members of DELWP Barwon South West’s environmental projects team for a tour of Green Swamp. On the back of a very dry summer and early autumn, levels have receded dramatically.  But the good news is there is still around 50 hectares of area covered by water. ...
  • Bats, caves, wombats and owls – an inspiring week away in NSW! April 20, 2018 I recently attended the Australasian Bat Society (ABS) biennial conference – and what an inspiring and fascinating week it was! The ABS aims to promote the conservation of bats in the Australasian region, by supporting research and engaging with the community. About 150 bat experts, carers, and enthusiasts travelled to western Sydney for the 3 day ...
  • Revisiting the RRR Conference – Part 1 – Unlocking the self-sustaining restoration potential of drained wetlands April 20, 2018 Back in February 2017, I went along to one of the most interesting and – given NGT’s focus on restoration science and practice – most relevant conferences I have ever attended. The Restore, Regenerate, Revegetate  (RRR) Conference in Armidale was a fantastic opportunity to rub shoulders with people just like us, trying to get positive things ...
  • The donation of Kurrawonga generates a lot of interest! April 20, 2018 Last month’s announcement of the incredibly generous donation of Kurrawonga at Nelson by the Moore family has generated some wonderful positive feedback. Thanks to those of you that shared your happy memories of times spent over the years on the property with Bill and Kate Moore, and for your best wishes to NGT as the new custodian of this ...
  • Positive Feedback for NGT at the SA State NRM Science Conference April 20, 2018 The SA NRM Science Conference is the largest regular gathering of NRM scientists and practitioners from across South Australia and beyond.

  • Photo of the week – Underwater at Ewens Ponds, SA April 20, 2018 Ewens Ponds is a true underwater garden and one of the aquatic highlights of South East SA. This karst rising-spring system pushes incredibly clear water through a linked chain of three sinkholes, before joining Eight Mile Creek to terminate at the ocean about 2km south. The ponds are up to 9m deep, and the glassy water ...
  • Announcing… NGT’s first Reserve in Victoria: Kurrawonga at Nelson March 25, 2018 Today I am able to share some really wonderful news with you – noting that this type of thing doesn’t come along very often! In an incredibly generous gesture in memory of their late parents, Bill and Kate, the Moore family have decided to donate 40 hectares (100 acres) of covenanted bushland – called Kurrawonga – to Nature Glenelg Trust. The ...
