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.
After the uncertainty as to whether this annual celebration could take place due to the coronavirus restrictions and regulations, it was an excited group of Friends of Eastern Otways and ANGAIR members that gathered at 10.00am at the Moggs Creek Picnic Ground ready to share the experience of walking the Moggs Creek Circuit Trail.
It is amazing just how quickly the flush of our spring orchids came to an end. In the beginning of November there were some magnificent hybrids between the Large White Spider Orchid, Caladenia venusta, and the Mantis Orchid, C. tentaculata, and we are pleased to share Graham Lee’s great photos with you.
Anglesea, Aireys Inlet and the surrounding area are included in one of Victoria’s greatest bushwalking areas—the Great Otway National Park.
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.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
