  • Farewell to Doug Phillips – a dynamic, passionate and effective advocate for the environment April 18, 2019 Tributes to Doug Phillips (07 Sep 1957 – 07 Mar 2019) Nature Glenelg Trust Tribute It has been an extremely sad and challenging time for many of us who knew, respected and worked with Doug Phillips, as we come to terms with the recent loss of a friend, and an incredibly important advocate for our region’s environment. I ...
  • Batty adventures await for Rose April 18, 2019 I’ll soon be pursuing some bat adventures and other travels in Latin America, so for the past few weeks I’ve been busy handing over my NGT responsibilities to others on the team. During May I was looking forward to taking part in a three-week bat blitz of Cape York with the Australasian Bat Society; however, due ...
  • Brolgas flocking to The Green Swamp near Glenthompson April 18, 2019 This time last year I reported a pair of Brolgas at The Green Swamp near Glenthompson; the first time I had seen this species at the wetland since undertaking restoration works in 2014.  Since then there have been regular sightings and the numbers of birds have grown. Mid April 2019, there were 36 Brolgas in ...
  • Two new populations of Eared Worm-lizard discovered! April 18, 2019 I must admit, I wasn’t too optimistic about the new tile grids established in 2016. The Swamp Gum Woodland vegetation type seemed quite promising, but summer surveys in 2017 and 2018 had only found skinks and brown snakes!    But on a warm, overcast day in late February 2019 under tile number 1.1, I found it ...
  • A sneak peek at the indigenous garden space taking shape at Narrawong District Primary School April 18, 2019 The artworks for the Dedicated Indigenous Garden and Sculpture (DIGS) project at Narrawong District Primary School are taking shape! The students worked with local artist, Catherine Bailey, to create beautiful silhouette designs of local flora and fauna last year. The designs have now been transformed into a circular mosaic, and an amazing fire globe by Portland ...
  • Help us find the Orange-bellied Parrot April 18, 2019 Autumn is here, and with that the start of preparations for the Orange-bellied Parrot winter surveys. First, an update on the latest recovery efforts. In early February, seven captive-bred juvenile OBPs were released in Tasmania. This is the second time that an autumn release has taken place in their breeding habitat in Melaleuca. Of the fifteen juvenile ...
  • Lots of media interest in the future of Yarra Pygmy Perch in the Murray Darling Basin April 18, 2019 Nick and other Aquasave staff at NGT, who specialise in our region’s aquatic threatened species, have been doing a great job bringing attention to the plight of Yarra Pygmy Perch (Nannoperca obscura) in the lower Murray system, and highlighting what we need to do to give the species a fighting chance of bouncing back. To find ...
  • Indigenous UniSA students visit Mt Burr Swamp April 18, 2019 Mt Burr Wetland turned on all the seasons with sunshine, cold breezes and a shower of rain for students from UniSA this month. The students are studying Land Management as part of their Aboriginal Pathways Program, and visited with lecturer Barry Tarr. Led by Bryan Haywood from NGT, the group explored how the soil types differ ...
  • A quick video update from Mark – the current happenings at Walker Swamp, April 2019 April 18, 2019 After a fantastic couple of days sandbagging recently, (thanks to all our helpers from across the region, both sides of the border!) I decided to ‘re-appear’ in the blogs temporarily to provide you with a quick update on the latest news on the NGT Reserve at Walker Swamp… Needless to say, after so many years in ...
  • Photogenic feral – Coast Capeweed April 18, 2019 If you think this looks like an alien species, then you are right. Coast Capeweed or Cape Beach Daisy (Arctotheca populifolia), might look beautiful, but is from the southern African coastline and is steadily making its way eastwards along the coast of Australia. Citizen Scientists John and Joan Young are keen to see it brought under ...
