AABR members are everywhere, often wearing several hats with fingers in multiple pies, all ultimately concerned with the protection and restoration of our bushland. Several AABR members were involved with the production of this excellent document, Foundation AABR member Robin Buchanan coordinated the production, AABR committee member Agata Mitchell and AABR members Mark Walters, Noela and Bill Jones provided comments.

We are always looking for articles for our newsletter, particularly from AABR members, about projects they are associated with. If you’d like to share a project you’re involved with contact Louise, newsletter@aabr.org.au
