Recog­ni­tion for com­mu­nity nest boxes

Field and Game - - FGA BRANCH NEWS -

Signs have been erected on a pop­u­lar walk­ing trail around Lake Guy­att and Lake Guthridge in Sale recog­nis­ing the con­ser­va­tion ef­forts of Sale Field & Game.

Welling­ton Shire Coun­cil has worked with Sale Field & Game to erect water­bird nest boxes in wet­lands that are more ac­ces­si­ble to the urban com­mu­nity.

The im­pres­sive signs point to the great con­ser­va­tion history of Field & Game Aus­tralia and par­tic­u­larly Herb Guy­att, a lo­cal hunter and con­ser­va­tion­ist who was in­stru­men­tal in the for­ma­tion of the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Mr Guy­att’s work in the re­gion was for­mally recog­nised in 1994 when Lake Guy­att was named in his me­mory.

The Coun­cil recog­nises Sale Field & Game as a leader in the restora­tion of lo­cal wet­lands and as a strong sup­porter of con­ser­va­tion pro­jects en­hanc­ing bio­di­ver­sity.

Bairns­dale Field & Game is also in­volved in a com­mu­nity nest box project that high­lights the con­ser­va­tion work of branches, and the im­por­tance of wet­land ecosys­tems to a broader au­di­ence.
