Earlier this week CCA volunteers were very pleased that a team from UWA’s Trinity Residential College gave us a hand. Tiny seedlings planted at Vlamingh 8 months ago are growing well despite this long hot and very dry summer. It has made a big difference that we have had good weed control at the site plus the fact that the seedlings have now received 4 good drinks since they were planted.
As you can see in the bottom photo, a weedy seadragon (pictured above) came to the working bee! The students showed interest in our campaign to have the endemic and fragile weedy seadragon protected in WA. Thanks to several students who have become facebook ‘weedy fans’!!
Aaron Walker, the Senior Resident Advisor from Trinity Residential College sent this post for our blog:
“On Tuesday the 22nd of February around 20 residents from Trinity Residential College volunteered down at the Cottesloe beach front to assist in Coastcare’s dune rehabilitation program. As part of our Community and Environment program, we took down some of our new residents, Resident Advisors and members of the Trinity Residents’ Club to help volunteer during our O-Week activities. All those who attended agreed it was a rewarding experience.”
Many thanks to you all and good wishes for a great study year.
