First Grants Awarded to NGT

09 Apr 2012 First Grants Awarded to NGT

Last Thursday I was delighted to receive an email from Nature Foundation SA (a very active environmental NGO in South Australia – see www.naturefoundation.org.au), informing me that Nature Glenelg Trust (NGT) has been awarded grant funding for 2 projects to occur next financial year in the South East of South Australia.

The projects will see NGT work in partnership with a range of other organisations and interested community members to help improve our understanding of two important species – the Dwarf Galaxias (a small freshwater fish species from wetlands) and the Eared Worm-lizard (a rare legless lizard discovered a few years ago for the first time in SA near Millicent in woodland habitat).

Keep an eye on our website over the coming months for updates on this work!
