Friends of Bonorong
Friends of Bonorong will use their grant of $10,000 to improve raptor rehabilitation outcomes in the north of the state by constructing round ‘doughnut’ aviaries, enabling Tasmanian raptors in their care, such as Wedge-tailed Eagles, to test fly at high speeds before release.
Eat Well Tasmania
Eat Well Tasmania will put their $10,000 grant towards the development of a new digital campaign called ‘Love Your Leftovers’, aimed at promoting responsible food waste practices in the home and encouraging people to get creative with their leftovers.
The Derwent Catchment Project
The Derwent Catchment Project has a healthy Miena Cider Gum conservation program at Miena in the Central Highlands. Over-browsing by possums is currently being experienced at the site due to wombats digging under the existing fence. With the help of a $5,240 grant, wombat gates will be installed, allowing passage of wombats whilst excluding access to other wildlife.
Tamar NRM has been awarded a $10,000 grant in support of their Source to Sea Project – an education framework which aims to engage and educate local school students and the broader community about the importance of the kanamaluka/Tamar Estuary Catchment, the traditional owners and land management techniques, pollution sources and impacts and native flora, fauna, and marine and birdlife habitats.
