The Northern Rivers is where the world’s largest expanse of subtropical rainforest meets mountains forged from ancient volcanoes, overlooking 300 kilometres of spectacular coastline.

The Northern Rivers is home to many types of flora and wildlife and many that need careful management.

The Northern Rivers Community Foundation (NRCF) provided funding for a Community Conservation Toolkit that was initiated by the Wildlife Information Rescue and Information Service (WIRES). Concerned about the impact of climate change on local wildlife WIRES members, originally teamed up to commence a three month monitoring trial at Rosebank, because it lies in the path of where wildlife may migrate southwards from the Nightcap World Heritage National Park and it also borders the Whian Whian State Conservation Area.

When they set about obtaining the equipment and relevant licences required to undertake the project they found that the equipment was difficult to obtain and expensive to hire. So they needed funds. The application was sent to NRCF in response to 2016 “Connecting Community’ Grants Program and was allocated a grant of $2,000 to purchase the equipment. This kit can be used by various members of the community for years to come.

The NRCF wants to support environment and conversation based charities.
