Jaliigirr Biodiversity Alliance By creating this Alliance, all our partners & their communities have the opportunity to work together at a landscape scale.

Jaliigirr Biodiversity Alliance - part of a national framework for the protection and security of biodiversity, ecosystem services and natural resources along the Great Eastern Ranges and Australia's Eastern Seaboard The Jaliigirr Biodiversity Alliance is a partnership that has been established to support the voluntary contributions of organisations, landholders and communities to improve and prot

ect the biodiversity of our landscape from the Dorrigo Plateau through the Bellinger Valley & seaboard to the Coffs Coast. The founding partners of the Alliance include many local community and Aboriginal groups, individuals, government and non - government agencies, public authority, business and education institutions who have an active interest in the health of the environment. The Alliance values Aboriginal cultural attachment to our landscapes & has embraced the Gumbaynggirr word for tree “Jaliigirr” to best describe our partnership. This can better manage threats to our biodiversity, it can build & grow our abilities & our businesses, and it will strengthen our communications. Our work will also contribute to the bigger national picture - the Great Eastern Ranges corridor.

Jaliigirr Biodiversity Alliance and Canines For Wildlife are conducting koala surveys to collect genetic material from koala s**ts (poo) for genetic, health and stress hormone analysis in the Coffs Harbour and Bellingen LGA’s.

We want to collect fresh koala s**ts and are seeking local information on where people are hearing koalas calling or seeing a koala. If you are able, it would be appreciated if you could message us on the same day you spot or hear a koala. Include in the message when you heard/saw the koala and a detailed location and we will come out ASAP to search for s**t material.

We can supply s**t collection protocols if you are interested in collecting the s**ts for us.

Please contact Lynn Baker on 0459546663 or Jack Nesbitt on 0477634513 or email
[email protected] if you can assist or want more information.

Amid efforts to curtail excess nutrients in the planet’s water, wetlands are proving to be nature-based heroes for improving water quality. While some efforts focus on large-scale restoration projects, research finds that even small, carefully planned, constructed wetlands, like the one on Fulton’s field, can make a critical difference.

What a great story from Reasons to be Cheerful!

Small, constructed wetlands on farms keep excess nutrients out of waterways — and the impacts can go a long way.

In 1972, American legal and environmental scholar Christopher Stone called for the rights and moral standing of trees, stating it is neither inevitable nor wise that beings of nature should have no rights, standing or voice in human society. This attention must include recognition that Indigenous relational knowledge with non-human intelligence and personhood existed long before the emergence of western modes of thought.
From The Conversation Australia + NZ

Getting serious about protecting global biodiversity requires not just policy but a revolution in how we talk about, and with, our planet’s forests.

A call for Wildlife-Friendly Fencing! 🦉

Many native species struggle to navigate past barbed wire fences, leading to thousands of preventable deaths a year.

It's crucial for wildlife to roam freely, so here are some things you can do to help:

🟢 Swap barbs for plain wire or cover with split poly pipe.
🟢 Enhance visibility with white nylon wires.
🟢 Spread the word! Talk to neighbours, councils, and fencing contractors about wildlife-friendly options.
🟢 Monitor barbed wire fences in your local area and report any entangled animals.
🟢 Caution: Don't approach trapped animals as it is likely to struggle and do more damage; let experienced carers handle rescues with minimal harm.

Achieving durable outcomes through community-led conservation.

This philanthropic Foundation distributed more than $550 million in 2022.

"....dreaming together, resourced communities and their collaborative partners at the local, state, and national levels can solve the interconnected challenges to healthy communities and ecosystems, resulting in positive, and durable, economic, ecological, and social justice outcomes."

From William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

The concept of durability has been at the forefront of my mind as we’ve worked with grantees and partners over the past year to refresh the Hewlett Foundation’s Western Conservation grantmaking strategy. It’s no secret that the U.S. West is facing a biodiversity and climate crisis — with com...

American Prairie is pleased to announce the acquisition of three new properties that are rich in wildlife and waterfowl, and provide important habitat connectivity to its existing Wild Horse and White Rock units.

The 2,003 acres contain a diverse landscape of wetlands, grasslands, and gumbo soils. It is not uncommon to see large populations of mule and white-tailed deer, pronghorn antelope, upland game birds, waterfowl, and prairie dogs.

In collaboration with LLS and Clarence Landcare, we are looking at the viability of running a dung beetle workshop, including offering beetle packs for subsidised establishment.

Workshop Dec 15th, establishment as close to then as possible.

If you have cattle and are interested, please fill in this form asap so we can work out if its viable. Also forward this to any neighbours who may be keen, as that will increase the viabililty of establishment at your place.

It's instructive that one of the partners involved is a hunting group.

Latest projects bolster habitat corridors across the state’s upland bird range.

Restoration work has been occurring at the Grey Headed Flying Fox camp up at Woolgoolga over the last few months to reduce the impacts of weeds on the structure and function of this vulnerable species roosting habitat. CHRL is helping Jaliigirr Biodiversity Alliance deliver this component of their larger project 'Protecting Grey Headed Flying Fox camps and food sources in the Coffs and Bellingen LGA's' which has been funded by WIRES. The funding has come at an opportune time to improve the Flying Fox's previous roosting area down near Woolgoolga Lake as they are currently roosting in the remnant vegetation closer to town.

This plant is on the National Environmental Alert List, and is close to our space as there are isolated pockets in Kempsey. Keep an eye out and report it if you see it.

Chinese violet is a fast growing creeper that forms sprawling mats, often up to 1 m high. The bright green leaves are oval or triangular shaped.

Chinese violet outcompetes native plants and reduces food and shelter for native animals. It also competes with crops and smothers garden plants and lawns.

if you see this plant, call your local council weeds officer or the NSW DPI Biosecurity Helpline: 1800 680 244.
