ANGAIR (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Preservation of Flora and Fauna) is dedicated to protecting our indigenous flora and fauna, and to maintaining the natural beauty of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet and their local environments. It was established in 1969 through the influence of a local resident Mrs Edith Lawn. Read more about our achievements over the last 50 years.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the ANGAIR website and will consider joining our Society. If you are interested in the environment, want to learn more about the flora and fauna found in it, and wish to conserve it for future generations, there are lots of different ways you can get involved and support us.
We were scheduled to walk along a track close to Woodlands Track off Forest Rd but received reports of a proliferation of Small Grass-tree, Xanthorrhoea minor subsp. lutea, spikes on Tanners Track opposite Cecil Track.
Once again we had perfect weather for our annual walk and celebrations at the Moggs Creek Picnic Ground on Saturday, December 11.
The last month of spring has been such an amazing time for orchids in the Anglesea district. We have added two new orchids to our list, and we feel we have finally come to understand the small leek orchids that have been flowering in the heathlands.
A small group of Angair members explored a rather depleted Ixoidia track which had been severely burnt. We walked a short distanced before moving to a side track on the left hand side . This proved to be very interesting and we saw a good variety of plants of the area.
Australia is in the grip of an unprecedented alien attack on its native wildlife and environment, with experts warning more of our unique flora and fauna is in danger of disappearing by 2050 unless urgent action is taken.
October was certainly a frustrating month as far as our sun orchids went. There were just so many specimens in bud throughout the heathlands, but not many sunny days to entice them to open. However if you managed to be there on that special day you would have marvelled at their beauty.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
