Stage 1 - Our first target is to raise $30,000 to support stage 1 Community Involvement and Action in 2016-17.
OzGREEN has launched a crowd funding campaign to raise funds to support community efforts to restore the Bellinger River catchment to health. Funds will be used for education, research and on-ground action.
- Community Involvement and Action - involving Bellingen Schools and Community in citizen science, learning and on-ground action to protect the turtles and restore river health.
- Research – a PhD scholarship at Western Sydney University to investigate the Bellinger River Snapping Turtle and steps to bring the species back from the brink.
OzGREEN is a Bellingen-based environmental learning and leadership organisation, working nationally and internationally. OzGREEN brings more than 25 years of experience in engaging local communities to protect and restore their rivers through citizen science, learning and action projects. www.ozgreen.org
