Welcome to the Friends of Edithvale Seaford Wetlands
EDITHVALE WETLANDS UPCOMING EVENTS:
The bird hide in Edithvale Road is open.
Members of the public can visit on Sundays anytime between the hours of 1 pm and 5 pm. Also the first and third Saturdays of each month at the same time. If you would like to volunteer for duty in the hide, please email Robin at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. You don't have to be a bird expert and initially you will be on duty with an 'old hand'.
Our aim is to conserve the wetland reserves and buffers of the Edithvale - Seaford Wetland Environmental Area.
See a summary of the recent Auditor General's report on the management of Australia's Ramsar listed wetlands here.
Our objectives are to :
Promote and encourage the protection, rehabilitation and enhancement of the wetland area for the benefit of indigenous flora and fauna.
Encourage scientific study of the habitat, fauna and flora of the wetlands area.
Promote awareness and appreciation of the wetlands area as a significant habitat for migratory birds, for breeding waterfowl and for wading species.
Exchange information on bird species, other fauna, flora and habitat with other interested organisations and authorities both locally and overseas.
Provide appropriate facilities for educational recreation by people whether young or old, fit or disabled.
