OzFish Unlimited's River Repair Bus comes to Dalton

Gunning District Landcare has a passion for our local endangered Southern Pygmy Perch, and we have been working towards the conservation of the species over many years. 

A survey of Oolong Creek in December 2021 found good numbers of Southern Pygmy Perch living there, which has refocussed our efforts in the area. It has led to a partnerehip with OzFish Unlimited, as well as DPI Fisheries, fish scientist Mark Lintermans, local landholders and the community to undertake habitat enhancement.

One of the first actions is woody weed removal from near Fossil Park in Dalton. Funds have been provided by Local Land Services via Upper Lachlan Shire Council. The OzFish River Repair Bus will be undertaking the work, beginning at the end of February 2023. Volunteers are invited to get involved! Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to lend a hand.
