Thank you so much to Peggy McDonald of Higher Ground Raptors for her wonderful post about the one-of-a-kind, purpose built free flight aviary recently completed at the Centre, as part of the NSW Wildlife Heroes Large Durable Assets Grant from the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife.

Peggy put her heart and soul into the planning and execution of this amazing new facility, making sure it was not just fit for purpose, but was exactly what her raptors needed to recover, thrive and safely be returned to the wild.

You can hear Peg speak about her passion for raptors, and the incredible work that she does, on the Wildlife Heroes podcast -Season 2 Episode 4.

Thanks to Peg for the wonderful work that she does every day. πŸ¦…πŸ¦…πŸ¦…

The theme for #NAIDOC2021 is Heal Country. Today we celebrate the work the Warddeken Rangers and Karrkad Kanjdji Trust are doing to Heal Country.

In 2019, FNPW commenced its support of the Mayh (Animal) Recovery Project in the Warddeken Indigenous Protected Area, a 1.4-million-hectare IPA in East Arnhem Land. The Mayh Recovery Project seeks to improve the status of key mammal species in the Warddeken IPA through informed adaptive management of key threatening processes. Of the mammal species that are targeted by the monitoring activities of the Mayh Recovery Project, 30% are listed as threatened in the NT and nationally.

Many of the children of the Warddeken Rangers learn about Country and Bininj knowledge (the traditional knowledge of the Aboriginal people of Western Arnhem Land) alongside mainstream education at the Nawarddeken Academy.

Today, we share their thoughts about how to Heal Country.

Please share to help us celebrate the work of the Karrkad Kanjdji Trust and the Warddeken Rangers.

The theme for #NAIDOC2021 is Heal Country. Today we celebrate the work Tamworth Local Aboriginal Land Council & the Banbai Rangers are doing to Heal Country.

In 2020, following the Black Summer bushfires, FNPW commenced the Healing our Land campaign to support projects to Heal Country. Funding went to support on-ground projects that included mapping of cultural sites, monitoring of threatened and feral species and revegetation of lands impacted by fires.

The Tamworth Local Aboriginal Land Council was a recipient of one of these grants. TLALC, along with the Banbai Rangers, undertook works across the Wattleridge Indigenous Protected Area (IPA), a 648ha reserve in the New England region of Northern New South Wales.

They installed 100 nesting boxes, propagated 4400 local plants, monitored for threatened species, including the Spotted Quoll and the Greater Glider and undertook feral control activities to monitor and manage pests, including feral goats and foxes.

The Wattleridge IPA and the work of the Banbai Rangers was recently showcased on Gardening Australia. You can view it here: ab.co/3qSVfu1
