Below is the weekly update covering Landcare activities, upcoming events and funding presented on Landcare’s weekly segment with Anne Delaney on Riverina ABC Breakfast Radio live from ~6.40am on Thursday mornings.
Where to record your plant and animal finds? We have been asked a few times where people can record plants and animals. We are not aware of any specific database for the Riverina. However, RLF Bindi has collated a list of options with some assistance from a social media call out. There are a lot of diverse, user-friendly options.
Which way is the wind blowing? This map can tell you this and much more, no matter your location on planet Earth. The dynamic map displays supercomputer forecasts drawn from multiple sources of global satellite data updated every three hours. The globe can be rotated interactively but to obtain full interactivity — including the ability to zoom — you should click the word “earth” on the lower left or send your browser directly to https://earth.nullschool.net.

For people reading this for the first time……. welcome. Landcare interest and activity in the Riverina is building momentum and as such, we continue to expand our list of Landcare contacts. This not only includes Landcare groups in the Riverina but the many other stakeholders and individuals who contribute in a variety of ways. If you would like to receive these snapshots as a weekly email, please contact Bindi at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please forward this snapshot to your groups and networks. Importantly, keep sending in your events to plug on the radio and with our weekly updates. And, importantly let us know how your event went.
