Tuesday the 19th February 2019 marked the inaugural meeting of the Rehabilitating Roe 8 Advisory Committee. The committee, comprising of fifteen members, are individuals who have an interest in the rehabilitation works within the corridor, representatives from community organisations and one government agency. This is a major part of ensuring rehabilitation activities, including community engagement are transparent and inclusive.
On Saturday a number of community members had a great morning learning about bats and building bat boxes that will be installed in the Roe 8 corridor. The workshop delivered by local bat expert Joe Tonga (Natsync) featured information on the local microbat population and how they support a range of functions in our wetlands and bushlands, including eating over 1000 midge/mosquitoes per night!!
The participants had a great time and were able to learn some new skills.
