In this edition of Park Watch we are proud to present a range of articles covering the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
We remember and pay a very special tribute to our dear friend, long-time colleague and defender of nature, Phil Ingamells, who very sadly passed away in August. Phil was a legend in conservation circles and a tireless campaigner for parks and nature.
Some of the inspiring stories inside include the end of native forest logging, rogue logging attempts in our forests, our eleventh year conducting citizen science in Bunyip State Park, Giant Spider Crabs stripping off, and how grasslands can survive both in new housing estates and in cemeteries.
We look at the risks of seismic blasting, celebrate the Sea Slug Census shortlisting for a Eureka award, seek protection for Dingoes, look at better ways to protect growing trees, and visit Point Nepean National Park.
And as always we have a range of other articles covering the most important issues concerning our national parks and other natural areas across our state.
