EAGA’s Biodiversity Monitoring in Melbourne’s East received the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA) World Environment Day Local Government Award, against strong competition from around Australia. The City of Boroondara lead the project and received the award on behalf of EAGA councils and the other partners in the project. Key project outcomes include:
- Assisting in the development and implementation of on-ground biodiversity monitoring that will allow climate change impacts to be measured
- Establishment of a ClimateWatch citizen science trail in three council reserves
- Residents participating in biodiversity workshops including bird watching
- Establishment of monitoring methods that will be incorporated into the future biodiversity strategic direction of all partner councils
A big thank you to the Boroondara team for their leadership on this excellent project, particularly Andrea Lomdahl as project manager. Read more about the project here.
