Resilient Landscapes support Biodiversity

Posted on: 7 May 2020

Over the past few months we have all had the opportunity to slow down, reflect and work from home. Not being in the field has been a big challenge for me! I have really missed my beautiful outside office and the landholders and volunteers I work with.

Hopefully it won't be long now, until we can all jump back into the diverse landscapes of our rich region. I am certainly looking forward to getting more trees in the ground and being back in nature observing our environment.

One way I thought I could still service my desire to be amongst nature was by creating some new display material for the Portland region. New posters to celebrate the beauty within our Shire. The aim, is to raise awareness of the importance of biodiversity, in particular our endemic plants and the importance of tree hollows to our wildlife.

The posters below are on our new facebook page and you are welcome to share them. Upload a picture of something from your bushland and start a conversation. If you don't have a bushland and want to participate, why not visit a local bushland and upload an image of a plant you like.

I would like to acknowledge the amazing photography work of Jeff Blackman and Robert J Farnes. I would like to thank both Robert and Jeffs family for making his images available for this work.
