      Against all odds...a Sea Turtle Survival Story When Sienna, an endangered loggerhead turtle, laboured her way up Rainbow Beach’s main swimming area under the full moon on the 12th of December 2019, she had no idea she was entering the busiest location in the 50 kilometers of beach under the stewardship of Cooloola Coastcare. Her mind was on the task at hand; depositing this large clutch of eggs in a safe location above the high tide, away from the raging surf and sweeping tides so co...

    Sydney, Australia, is a global city, blessed to still have areas of remnant natural bushland scattered throughout its suburbs. When Captain Cook first sailed into Botany Bay in 1770, the biodiversity would have been spectacular and even to this day there is a far greater diversity of plant species within the city boundaries than exist in the entire United Kingdom. Some incredible wildlife still occurs here too. The problem is that bushland areas are extremely sensitive to invasive weeds and can ...

    Alby Wooler and a group of friends formed the Capricorn Coast Landcare Group in 1987.

    Over forty years ago, the Innisfail State High School Grade 12 class Student Council came up with the idea to plant a rainforest revegetation plot in the school grounds.  In subsequent years, encouraged by a young biology teacher, the plot was maintained and increased.  Then in 2006 came Category 5 Cyclone Larry, with severe damage to trees throughout the area.  Within school grounds, the powers-that-be decided trees were a hazard and many other schoolyards around our area were denuded, as t...

    The Upper Goulburn Landcare Network recently completed a very successful project to protect isolated individual trees and groups of paddock trees on farms. As well as providing shade for stock paddock trees provide important habitat and hollows for wildlife. The fallen leaf litter and branches also provide habitat for lizards, frogs and mammals. Unfortunately stock can affect the health of these trees and eventually kill them by camping underneath, compaction of the roots and by rubbing an...

    Majella Stevens and partner Jonah Herbst have restored their land into a thriving property, despite clear evidence of its prior poor land management when they purchased it in 2013 in Broadswater, Queensland. The biodiversity, and the resulting effectiveness of their land, was poor. Free range cattle grazing by the previous owner resulted in bare soil, soil capping, overgrazed plants, erosion of creek and dam banks, weed invasion, and mineral depletion – despite two tonnes of fertiliser applied ...

    Mid-summers in steamy Central Queensland aren’t for the faint hearted. If a cyclone isn’t boiling on the north eastern horizon and dumping inches of torrential rainfall, then the hot still air shimmers with the scent of eucalyptus whilst cicadas erupt in rowdy chorus. The sea fishermen rejoice on these calm days, but personally I’m like the yachties who toast each other when the cooling breezes fleck Keppel Bay with white caps. I’m the office coordinator of a small Landcare group which has b...
