A strong showing for connectivity conservation in this year’s Banksia Awards. The collective effort by groups across Gondwana Link is a finalist in the ‘Land and Biodiversity’ category, and South Australia’s NatureLinks is a finalist for the ‘In Collaboration’ category. Winners are to be announced at a Gala Dinner in Melbourne on 9 October. WA’s Department of Water will also be there, for work freshening up the Denmark River, and Keith Bradby’s old mates from Serpentine Jarrahdale and North Dandalup are also finalists. Should be a good night!
