Coastwatchers Eurobodalla’s voice for nature
The Coastwatchers Association Inc. is a leading community environmental and conservation group serving the South Coast of NSW, principally in the Shire of Eurobodalla between Narooma and Batemans Bay. The Association also addresses issues in the bordering Shires of Shoalhaven (north), Bega (south) and Palerang (west), when issues in those Shires have a direct impact on the Eurobodalla region.
Wildlife Survey – Great Eastern Ranges Project
Sign up with iNaturalist and record your wildlife observations in our pilot project
The volunteer Eurobodalla Koala Project is partnering with Coastwatchers to deliver the Great Eastern Ranges South Coast Project. This is a 3-year WWF-funded mix of activities aimed at vegetation rehabilitation, connectivity, wildlife resilience, bushfire recovery and future bushfire impact mitigation.
One aspect is a strategic wildlife survey, to help judge the current status of threatened species and guide us in our private property revegetation projects.
A pilot survey was distributed in early March 2022 to bush-dwelling locals in the East Lynne, Durras and Bawley Point precinct. Later, the survey will be refined and expanded to many more people across the Eurobodalla and Lower Shoalhaven.
If you would like to participate in the survey, go to Eurokoalas/Contact and give us your email address or phone number.
This project is supported through a partnership between the Great Eastern Ranges and the World Wide Fund for Nature-Australia as part of a broader bushfire recovery effort.
