Community invited to help map local biodiversity

13/11/2020

Georges River Council is calling on local residents to share observations regarding local flora and fauna, to assist with the development of its Biodiversity Study of the Georges River area.
 
Council has partnered with Total Earth Care to undertake the study, which aims to identify local areas of high biodiversity value and importance to ensure their protection.
 
The Biodiversity Study is currently in its early stages and Council is seeking input from the community to help enrich its findings by sharing knowledge regarding biodiversity values, notable species and areas of significance. This includes observations of local flora and fauna, rare or threatened species, and changes in the presence of weeds and other pest species. 
 
Key community groups have been invited to speak at an upcoming webinar, which will be recorded and published on Your Say Georges River with a broadcast link on the night. The wider community is welcome to view this webinar, on Thursday 26 November at 6.00pm
 
Local residents are invited to complete a questionnaire on Your Say Georges River, to share their unique knowledge and experience of biodiversity locally: https://yoursay.georgesriver.nsw.gov.au/biodiversity-study-for-georges-river   
 
Hard copies of the questionnaire are also available at Council’s Civic Centre in Hurstville and the Hurstville, Clive James and Penshurst Libraries. The closing date for the questionnaire is Friday 11 December 2020.
