Environmentality, 21 September 2011

After a five week break due to Jaime's holiday in Spain and unfortunately without Peter, who has moved to Benalla (good luck with the new live, Peter!) today we had the pleasure of sharing the Environmentality hour with Chris Cook, Nathan Wong and Tiffany Inglis, from Trust for Nature.

During the interview, we learned about this organisation that has protected more than 80,000 hectares of native vegetation in Victoria. This includes more than 1000 private properties protected by conservation covenants, 111 properties purchased by Trust for Nature (51 currently retained and 60 transferred to the Crown for inclusion in the reserve system); and 43 properties sold through the Revolving Fund.
Apart from talking about the organisation, we also learned a little bit about how Hadfield looked before it became the suburban area that it now is, thanks to Nathan's impressive knowledge about the local biodiversity.

Tiffany told us about a couple of events that are coming up and invited our listeners to join their Facebook Page. We have already Liked it, what are you waiting for?

Chris also brought quite a lot of top quality music that Smokey was able to include into his selection, so all in all it was another great show!

Listen to the show!
