In this edition of Park Watch, we have a special feature on the 50th anniversary of the proclamation of the Leadbeater’s Possum and Helmeted Honeyeater as Victoria’s faunal emblems.

We welcome the release of the Protection of the Alpine National Park: Feral Horse Action Plan, share a new find in the forests of the central west, critique the Victorian Government’s fuel break construction program, and call on our representatives to stop the decline of our state’s threatened plants and animals.

We also farewell one of our favourite Park Watch writers, Phil Ingamells, as he retires after two decades working on parks protection with Victorian National Parks Association.

As always we cover the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
