Dorothy and Robert have been working hard over the past few years to stablise the [...]

Conservationists understand that rehabilitating environment takes cooperation between public and private landholders. Since European settlement, vast tracts of Australian land have come into private ownership. We simply cannot rely on isolated islands of government (or Crown) bushland to preserve our natural heritage and wildlife corridors. This is why Landcare, and other environment groups all over the country, collaborate with private landholders as well as different levels of government to plan [...]

Art Vs Extinction.

‘Art versus extinction’ – it sounds like a war cry for artists. For those who create and despair. For storytellers and picture makers and agitators everywhere. For anyone who wants to live on this planet alongside its other inhabitants, not instead of them. It’s also the heart of Moira Finucane’s extraordinary art event, The Rapture Chapter II: Art vs Extinction.   Moira Finucane The Rapture Art vs Extinction (photo Jodie Hutchinson) [...]

Images of tree plantings often show a happy group of volunteers out in the sunshine, planting happily around easily accessible dams and paddocks. But some plantings are a lot less straightforward... Munash Organics, a Ballarat based sustainable soil improvement company, recently sponsored one such occasion high in the hills above Flowerdale. One of the sites of the devastating 2009 bushfires, the ridges around Flowerdale have suffered from erosion since their [...]

At first glance, wine and koalas might not seem to have much in common. But that’s where creative sustainable thinking comes in. TAP. is a contemporary keg-style system of wine storage and service that significantly reduces waste, landfill, and manufacturing emissions. At last count, TAP had diverted 202,322 bottles from landfill. Not stopping there, TAP. has also committed to planting 1200 native trees over the next six months – habitat [...]
