ANGAIR (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Preservation of Flora and Fauna) is dedicated to protecting our indigenous flora and fauna, and to maintaining the natural beauty of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet and their local environments. It was established in 1969 through the influence of a local resident Mrs Edith Lawn. Read more about our achievements over the last 50 years.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the ANGAIR website and will consider joining our Society. If you are interested in the environment, want to learn more about the flora and fauna found in it, and wish to conserve it for future generations, there are lots of different ways you can get involved.
Latham’s Snipe breed in Japan, and each year migrate to Australia for our summer. These large, elusive, handsome birds are in urgent need of protection and better management, so each year there are counts held all over Australia.
It has been another wonderful month to be out observing orchids. The most exciting highlight has been the sighting of Brown Beaks, Lyperanthus suaveolens.
From the Library budget I have purchased two new books. The catalogue is available on the ANGAIR website—write down the Dewey number of the book listed there and call me anytime to open up the Library for you, if needed.
Ten of us had a delightful ramble in a section of the GONP burnt in 2018. We were very happy to welcome some new people to our group.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
