To all our members, supporters and volunteers,
Thank you all for another fantastic year. Your help throughout 2013 whether it be at the Reserve, at an event or just by reading our newsletter is invaluable and we thank you one and all.
Arid Recovery could not achieve what it does without your support and we hope that we will see and hear from each and every one of you in 2014.
I would like to say a very special thanks to all AR staff for their amazing efforts this year. For those of you who have not been keeping up to date with our bettong project the AR staff, through the great organisational efforts of Cat Lynch, have achieved a super human feat of moving over 1500 bettongs – a record number unheard of previously by anyone, anywhere! So to Cat, Anni, Craig, Tina, Hayley & Vanessa who have worked throughout the year to make AR what it is I say thanks.
A special mention should also go to AR’s part-timers, Marty Kittle & Katherine Moseby. Marty, who is now in his 10th year of checking the AR fence, continues to be a great support to myself and all AR staff with his knowledge and easy going ways. Katherine, now as AR’s research scientist, has recently started on an amazing new project that will see AR research & the Reserve go onto bigger and better things over the coming years.
Have a safe and happy festive season and as a special treat our fabulous volunteer Alix Palmer has written an AR Xmas carol. We hope you enjoy.
