Glenelg Hopkins CMA field trip

The Glenelg Hopkins Catchment Management Authority is a major financial contributor to our Recovery Team and has extended that support by attending a field trip to raise awareness of Red-tail needs.

Red-tail Team staffing equates to less than one full time staff member, which limits our ability to get in touch with landholders and inform them of our Red-tail recovery efforts. To assist us with this, we inform as many on-ground staff as possible in the Red-tail range of the importance of stringybark and buloke bushland. This includes CMA staff responsible for assisting landholders to protect and enhance native habitat.
Anyone in the Glenelg Hopkins area wanting assistance to protect native habitat should contact the Glenelg Hopkins CMA on 03 5571 2526
