We've taken a deep dive into the story of Abattoir Swamp this edition, bringing you up to speed on the history, vision, and current happenings related to this important bit of remnant habitat high in the catchment, on the Hunter Creek and Rifle Creek drainages.
You'll also find the latest research on Tilapia, progress with Frogbit, announcement of our Water Security Forum on 26 May in Dimbulah, and plenty of other bits from around the catchment.
Money has to be invested in the fight to keep Frogbit out of the Mitchell. The funding has to be secured for the next several years until we beat this threat.
Rather than complain and point fingers, key land managers have reached into their own budgets and are providing much-needed additional funds for a Sentinel Network that can protect the Mitchell while the bigger issue of cleaning up the Barron gains traction.
We are acting in the leadership role to co-ordinate action to control and reduce the Koster's curse infestation centred at Julatten.
