Saving our Species Spring 2019 newsletter

September is an action-packed time for the Saving our Species team, with plenty of activities taking place across NSW to mark both Threatened Species Day on Saturday 7 September and Biodiversity Month.

Malleefowl (Leipoa ocellata), an iconic threatened species, in the Nymagee area of NSW

Threatened Species Day kicked off with a bang on the weekend, with events being held state-wide. From BioBlitz in the Lower Hunter to the Blue Mountains Reptile Day and Koala Fest Hawkesbury, it was exciting to see so many members of the community out in full force to help protect and learn more about the diverse array of plants and animals that are native to NSW.

There are plenty more events happening throughout September and October, so make sure you check out our calendar to find an event nearby.

This month, we’re calling on volunteers to help us paint a picture of the endangered malleefowl’s behaviour – and you can do it from the luxury of your living room! Get involved with the malleefowl DigiVol project.

In this edition of the Saving our Species newsletter, we invite you to check your quollifications in our fun quoll-themed quiz, watch our brand-new animated video and download the new app for reporting koala sightings in NSW.

Thank you for being part of the Saving our Species movement and helping to conserve our unique plants and animals for generations to come.
