Project launch for Bellingen Riverwatch – Our River, Our Future. The project has been set up to provide the community with the opportunity to get involved in caring for the Bellinger River and its’ tributaries. It is an initiative of OzGreen, Saving our Species program and the Office of Environment and Heritage, to engage the community in a citizen science project aimed at monitoring the health of our rivers.
The project has partnered with Bellingen Shire Council, Bellinger Landcare, NSW Waterwatch, Earth Watch Initiative, scientists and researchers from Western Sydney University and Taronga Zoo Sydney, local environmental consulting firm Eco Logical Australia and five local schools (Bellingen Public School, St Mary’s Primary School, Orama Public School, Chrysalis Steiner School and Bellingen High School) to deliver this project in the Bellingen Shire.
