Over the last 5 years, GWLAP and other community groups have supported the (now) Hills and Fleurieu and Murraylands and Riverland Landscapes Boards to assess the health of the Angas and Finniss Catchments.
Every Spring and Autumn volunteers have attended a Bioblitz day to collect macroinvertebrate (waterbug) samples from sites along the two rivers, and with the help of scientists, have sorted and identified the macroinvertebrate species present at each site.
Members from the Angas River Catchment Group, Finniss Catchment Group Prospect Hill Bushland Group, Macclesfield Landcare Group and the general community have donned waders, wielded nets and shared their knowledge about catchment health and processes.
A report on the data collected has now been released and you can read it here.
This project is supported by the Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board, Hills and Fleurieu
Landscape Board and Flows for the Future Program through funding from the Australian Government
and the Landscape levies.
