Welcome to the first edition of Network News for 2020!
We hope you had a nice break over the festive season.
It has been a difficult start to the year with the devastating bushfires happening in the south and east of our country. The impact on livelihoods and our precious ecosystems is only just starting to unfold. Our thoughts are with the brave firefighters, residents and wildlife carers.
With summer in full swing, our Catchment is looking much drier, with the exception of the vineyards which are starting to fill out. Our wetlands still have some water and waterbirds, such as waders and shorebirds, are making the most of the shallow waters. Now is the best time to see the migratory birdlife that visits the region.
As the moon rises on a new year, we are excited to work with the community to further protect and enhance the beautiful Geographe Bay Catchment.
