  • Celebrating an amazing 10 years of NGT’s work for the environment! January 27, 2022
    Over the past 12 months, I have been hearing about anniversaries of various charitable environmental organisations we interact with across south-eastern Australia, all of which are doing great work. Here are some of the anniversary milestones I can recall that were either highlighted last year, or that were mentioned as coming up this year…60 years: ...
  • Kicking off NGT’s next 10 years – plus a new employment opportunity coming soon… January 27, 2022
    Milestones have a habit of triggering a degree of self-reflection for us all, which is probably a good thing! At NGT, we are no different, as we try to learn from what we’ve experienced so far, and make fresh plans for the future. After all, a lot has changed since we began 10 years ago…Hence ...
  • Working with a water utility to foster better outcomes for biodiversity January 27, 2022
    In its newsletter this month, the Australian Water Association featured a great story about how the Yarra Valley Water (YVW) 2030 Strategy has provided the foundation for the organisation to take a closer look at how it approaches sustainability across its business. A key area of focus that subsequently emerged for YVW is “healthy ecosystems”, ...
  • Another piece of the Washpool jigsaw: an 1839 map illuminates pre-colonial state of this important coastal wetland January 27, 2022
    As discussed in previous posts, Nature Glenelg Trust is currently researching the hydrological history of the Aldinga Washpool, a seasonal wetland nestled behind the coastal dunes at Sellicks Beach, south of Adelaide. The site has great potential for hydrological restoration and, by piecing together the evidence that describes its state prior to European colonisation, we ...
  • Repairing the Past at private land conservation sites – Part II January 27, 2022
    Last month we introduced a new project to you, which aims to collaboratively repair impacts of past land management across four reserves in the upper South East of South Australia. Project partners have been busy lately, connecting with people and information and walking on country to plan the next steps (for more detail on the ...
  • Conservation Fences Part 3: Bilbies in Queensland provide a fresh example of ‘leakiness’ of a predator proof fence, and explaining the ‘halo effect’ January 27, 2022
    The Greater Bilby (Queensland Government)Given the ongoing conversation we’ve been having about things like threatened mainland fauna, the new NGT project at Mt Vandyke and conservation fences, an interesting story from south-west Queensland late last year grabbed my attention. In this ABC News article, we heard about a bilby (or possibly two) being spotted outside of ...
  • Southern purple-spotted gudgeon flourish in new home in Mildura January 27, 2022
    The rediscovery of Southern Purple-spotted Gudgeon in Third Reedy Lake, near Kerang, northern Victoria in 2019, marked the second time this species had apparently come ‘back from the dead’. Following this discovery, fish were collected and bred by Aquasave-NGT and Middle Creek Farm before being released into numerous Victorian sites including the Ornamental Lakes in ...
  • Catch up: webinar recording about turtles in South East SA & SW Victoria January 27, 2022
    Back in November, I joined turtle expert Mike Thompson in an online webinar to discuss freshwater turtles in south-eastern Australia. Freshwater turtle populations have declined by up to 90% in some areas of Australia, and – despite many of us having sightings in our travels – there is little in the way of formally recorded ...
  • Hamilton schools working together to produce wetland field guide January 27, 2022
    Our first activities at Walker Swamp this year are going to be truly amazing. The project involves two local schools working together: Hamilton Parklands School – a school for children with intellectual disabilities, that supports and prepares students to become active and engaged members of their community; and the Good Shepherd College – a school ...
  • Newbery Park primary enjoy some outdoor activities with birds, bats, waterbugs, and fish! January 27, 2022
