We were delighted to be visited by Board members from the Maine Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. The Conservancy supports conservation in 35 countries across the world, and this visit was part of a program to build stronger ties between US based programs and the work underway in Australia. Bush Heritage has a strong relationship with the Maine Chapter, having had their state Director Kent Wommack in Australia on a fundraising fellowship, and this visit was one of the fruits of that. Our guests started their trip at Bremer Bay International Airport and travelled through the Fitz-Stirling area before a day in the wet forest at Walpole. Thanks to experts Katie Syme and Nathan McQuoid for sharing their detailed ecological knowledge.
