Our stakeholder meetings this week:
We attended the Urban Bushland Council‘s AGM which provided some clear case studies of the critical issues we face. Dr Hugh Finn, Chair of the WA Environmental Defenders Office presented “The Invisible Harm: Land Clearing and the Welfare of Our Native Fauna”. An excellent presentation of how clearing causes death and suffering to individual animals that is not usually considered in assessments. The discussion afterwards highlighted the even less visible harm caused to huge numbers of invertebrate animals, critical to our biodiversity and ecology. Great to meet some “Friends of” groups in the north of Perth. We are looking forward to meeting with you.
We met with Renata Zelinova, the Business Development Officer at WALGA, who many of you may know as the source of the Environmental Planning Tool. We obtained a wealth of information about planning and its interaction with biodiversity conservation to add to our resources.
We had an inspirational discussion with Zoe Atkinson, Sohan Ariel Hayes and Mandy Bamford from Boorna Waanginy. The calibre of people we have met already on the NatureLink journey – all working to sustain biodiversity into the future – gives us great hope that we can, together, make a difference.
I sign off listening to some motorbike frogs in the pond outside my study window… Send us some stories of your habitat garden, how have you made a difference with creating a place for our biodiversity.
And, of course, always email us any information you have, people you think we should contact or events/activities that are happening – so we can share with everyone through NatureLink Perth and make all of us more effective agents of change.
