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.
