ANGAIR (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Protection 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 40 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, you will gain enormous satisfaction and enjoyment from being an ANGAIR member.
For me, white is the colour of summer here, our ‘Snow in summer’!
The Swans at Aireys Inlet Allen Noble Sanctuary have successfully raised their seven young ones.
We expect to begin construction of the Propagation Unit during December and perhaps commence the move a bit later in December as well.
Identifying some of the blue sun orchids that grow in the Anglesea district can often be a daunting challenge and one sometimes has to take an educated guess as to what species we are looking at.
African Weed Orchid
The outbreak of African Weed Orchid, Disa bracteata, is a very real threat to the indigenous orchids and flora in this area. It is a ground orchid growing to about 30 cm tall with small yellow, green and brown flowers arranged in a dense spiral on fleshy stems. It is known from a range of disturbed woodland, heathland and grassland environments.
More details about how to control this weed can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
