EARTH MATTERS September 21 - Volunteering for the Wombats

Grafton residents Joan O’Shea and husband Rick have worked as caretakers in Epping Forest National Park for a month or more each year since 2008.  This scientific National Park, north-west of Clermont in central Queensland is the stronghold for the critically endangered Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat. The entire population of these wombats is estimated at about 220.

In her presentation Joan will talk about the caretakers’ role in looking after the wombats in this isolated area as well the other wildlife that they see as they do their daily check of watering and feeding stations in this fenced wombat refuge.

Earth Matters is a session on environmental issues which is conducted every two months by the Clarence Valley Conservation Coalition in conjunction with the Clarence Environment Centre.

Time: 5.30 pm, Monday September 21.  Venue: Staffroom, Grafton Primary School, Queen St, Grafton.

All welcome.
