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.
The ANGAIR Wildflower and Art Weekend for 2021 has been cancelled due to the pandemic.
However, the ANGAIR Nature Show website is now online and has something for everyone!
The COVID and weather gods combined to give us perfect conditions for our August bird walk – our first walk outside the Surf Coast for nearly two years. Our destination was the wonderful Serendip Wildlife Sanctuary at Lara, where 150 bird species have been recorded.
In August I’ll be walking in the heathy woodlands looking for glimpses of blue from the delightful bluish-mauve pea flowers of Common Hovea, Hovea heterophylla.
The Small Helmet Orchid, Corybas unguiculatus, has been chosen as our special orchid for this month. It is so tiny that it can easily be overlooked.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
