Watershed Landcare Incorporated is set to receive $18,900 in funding under the Australian Government’s Communities Environment Program.

The funds will go towards Watershed’s ‘Wild Encounters’ project which aims to engage and educate the local community about threatened species.

Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee, says that we are extremely lucky to have such a diverse range of Australian flora and fauna – and as a community, it is our job to work together to protect and conserve them.”

He says that projects like ‘Wild Encounters’ will play an important role in increasing local awareness and preserving the habitats of endangered animals such as the spotted-tailed quoll greater glider, the powerful owl and the brown treecreeper.
