Community assisting in species recovery

Natural Resources South Australian Murray-Darling Basin (SAMDB) is inviting interested community members or groups within the SAMDB region to become involved in threatened species recovery programs.

Natural Resources SAMDB recognises that volunteers and community are vitally important to the long term success of these programs and in collaboration with various stakeholders and the Murray Mallee Local Action Planning (LAP) Group, is seeking to establish or expand existing pathways for involvement.

Depending on capabilities and desires, interested individuals or groups can contribute in a number of ways.

Examples of activities include;

  • local revegetation projects targeting known habitat for key threatened species

  • assisting in monitoring programs or research activities

  • supporting promotional campaigns.

The Murray Mallee LAP region is home to several threatened species such as, mallee emu-wren, red-lored whistler, striated grasswren, western whipbird and malleefowl and recovery actions are currently underway.

For further information or to become involved please contact Natural Resources SAMDB Fire and Threatened Mallee Bird Ecologist, Chris Hedger on phone 08 8532 9100 or via email at chris.hedger@sa.gov.au.
