Biodiversity Team Says Bye to 2022

2020 who? What a year – it feels like the Biodiversity team blinked and it was gone.

At the start of year, we waved goodbye to Amanda and Kahree as they ventured to their new and exciting opportunities and welcomed our school-based trainee Paige and our new Biodiversity project officer Lynsey.

2022 was amazing but where did it go… here a few of the great achievement the Biodiversity team are proud of.

We banded our 2nd generation of Murchison Station Carnaby chicks.

Successful breeding was recorded in 9 out of 10 NACC funded artificial hollows installed at Coomallo and 3 out of 6 at Koobabbie farm.

An increase in Malleefowl breeding attempts was noted during our monitoring season and annual National Malleefowl Recovery Team reporting for the NAR highlighted an upward trend in active mounds.

Our new partner project safeguarding Midwest flora began with DBCA protecting three federally recognised priority flora by undertaking seed collection and preservation, survey work and site protection.

Wake of the storm project is under way and we are looking forward to gaining a glimpse into the recovery of our vegetation types across Mingenew, Morawa and Perenjori keep posted in the new year for more information about this project!

And with all of our achievements we couldn’t do this amazing work without the dedication of our  passionate volunteers, Ranger teams and partner organizations who work with us throughout the year… thank you all…and we look forward to working together next year for towards conserving Biodiversity in the NACC Region.  

Merry holidays and a safe and happy new year!

Jarna Kendle – Biodiversity Program Coordinator
