Incentives available for works to improve riparian and fish habitat along the Lower Kiewa River

Expressions of interest are now open for landholders to be part of a new project to enhance riparian and fish habitat for threatened species on the Lower Kiewa River.

Mountain Pygmy-possum Recovery in the Victorian Alps

The Mountain Pygmy-possum Recovery in the Victorian Alps is a 5-year project focused on improving Mountain Pygmy-possum populations in Victoria.

The North East Catchment Management Authority has coordinated the delivery of management actions and collaboration across multiple project partners, including other governmental agencies, alpine resorts, Traditional Owners and First Nations groups, and researchers in the field.

The project has come a long way, and on-ground works continued over the last year to protect possum populations in the North East.

Book highlights Border garden examples as "antidote" to urbanisation problem

As published in The Border Mail 30 November 2022

Border residents hoping to make their gardens more hospitable environments for endangered wildlife can now get information specific to the region.

Wodonga Urban Landcare Network has produced a coffee table book 'Habitat Gardens of Albury-Wodonga' to inspire and educate residents on how to make their gardens more wildlife friendly.

Project coordinator Lizette Salmon said the book featured eight local habitat gardens and an additional one on cat enclosures.

"We hope that it motivates people to start thinking of their gardens as a place of refuge for native animals," she said.

Free event looks at the science behind native fish management

Freshwater fish scientist Jarod Lyon believes it’s an exciting time in the recovery of native fish in north east Victoria.

“I can still remember growing up in the Kiewa Valley in the 90s, where a trip to the river invariably ended with a pile of carp on the bank,” Mr Lyon said.

“Those days are over, and native fish are making a long overdue resurgence.”

Mr Lyon, who leads a research team at the Arthur Rylah Institute will be the speaker at next week’s The Reel Story: The Science Behind Management of Native Fish in North East Victoria.
