Thrilled to receive an Honourable Mention in the Sydney Wildlife Rescue Outstanding Fundraiser Award 2023. This one's for Michael Bianchino too, whose photos and music make our fundraising work for wildlife possible as well as all the generous people who have contributed over the years! Pictured receiving certificate from Deb Fleet, Sydney Wildlife Rescue Board member in Beecroft Village on Sunday 9 December 2023.
We are very grateful to The Mullet Mail for featuring a review of our 'Secret Life of Powerful Owls' presentation at Brooklyn on Sunday 23 July 2023 in their spring edition. It's a great little publication by Dangar Island Residents - link to the complete edition below. Many thanks to everyone from the river communities of Brooklyn, Dangar Island, Mooney Mooney and surrounds who participated on the day, particularly Jenny from the Powerful Owl Project, Ana from Sydney Wildlife Rescue and of course, Michael.
If you tuned into Radio Skid Row 88.9fm on Tuesday 16 May 2023 from 2pm you would have caught our interview with presenter Neil Ashworth. We discussed a range of issues affecting threatened Powerful Owls including urban development, volunteering as citizen scientists for BirdLife Australia’s Powerful Owl Project, our fundraising presentations for a range of wildlife organisations and next project… It was a real hoot with a little original music too!
