Environment and Culture, Taralga
Description: IVP is collaborating with Great Eastern Ranges Initiative which aims to connect environment activist groups and experts to combine knowledge to ensure connectivity of habitats and biodiversity survival under the threats related to climate change. This is an ongoing project with funding provided by Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife. We are rehabilitating a small area of natural woodland, removing invasive weeds, listing native flora and fauna, planting native species to provide cover for small birds and mammals.
Type of Work: Some of the work will be to continue weeding, planting, and recording. However, the main task will be to create methods of displaying and disseminating the information gathered over the last two years. This includes lists and photographs of birds, grasses, flowers, shrubs. We also need to show how the site has changed over time through the work we have been doing. Volunteers will work in small groups on selecting the photos and creating a digital and physical display to be distributed locally as well as designing signs to be erected at the site.
Study Theme: You will learn a lot about the Australian environment and the importance of connectivity of habitats for survival of species. We will try to organise an expert on some aspect of environment. There will be some workshops with local community and possibly at the local primary school.
Accommodation: Accommodation is in shared rooms with beds, in a simple historic farm house. Mattress, pillow, blankets supplied. Please bring your own sheets and pillowslip or a sleeping bag. It is in a rural area surrounded by farm land, 10 km from a small village with one shop, 50 km from larger town and railway station. Shared cooking and housekeeping.
Requirements: A fairly good level of English is desirable. Volunteers with digital photo editing skills are welcome.
