Do you need help with post-fire weed management?
AABR is Australia’s peak body of qualified and experienced bush regenerators, whether professional or volunteer. We have recently called upon our networks to seek volunteers to assist managers of high conservation value wildfire-affected fauna habitats across Australia who do not already have experienced regenerators available. (But we urge others to apply – even if it is not major wildlife habitat – in case we have someone who can help).
We will be prioritising sites whose managers have a capacity to provide the logistic support to the volunteers. But please contact us even if you don’t have the facilities to coordinate or support volunteers as we will pass your information and the contact details of our volunteers to a volunteer coordination body who can act as a managing third party.
The survey below will capture your details and request for support.
