Geoscience at Native ARC

Upon arrival to Native ARC the team eagerly collected their PPE, and walked over to the enclosures where they were split into two groups. One group worked on a small demountable located within the Kangaroo enclosure, which was stripped and cleaned of dirt and debris. Admittedly, it was tricky to stay on task, as the curious and very friendly Kangaroos kept distracting the team to say "Hi!". The other team members visited Vinnie the wombat and relevelled all his burrows that he had worked so hard to create - this was to create enrichment for Vinnie's mind and to stimulate him, by presenting him with a fresh personal project.

Engineering at Native ARC

Native ARC welcomed 17 volunteers from the Engineering team on a lovely November morning. The team were treated to a brief site tour and induction, where they met birds, reptiles, roos, Vinnie the wombat and the dingo pups. After the meet and greet the team were shown the day to day tasks that the regular Native ARC volunteers carry out. The tour provided the team with an opportunity to get a feel for the site, it helped to create an awareness and understanding of who they would be supporting on the day – the animals and Native ARC’s regular volunteers! Dean, Manager of Native ARC emphasised that as the regular volunteers are occupied carrying out the day to day tasks, they often don’t have the time (or skills) to execute the bigger projects work. This is why teams like Woodside are highly valuable over the past 4 years by Native ARC.

FIFO at Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group

A large crew from the Front line FIFO team were for the first time out at the same site at the same time! This time the site was located south of Perth within the Armadale –Gosnells region and the mission for the day was to support Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group plant as many native seedlings in the wetland area within a few hours. The team chucked on their gardening gloves, grabbed a bucket, filled it with seedlings and dispersed throughout the wetland area. The area was still wet and muddy from the recent months of rain, which made it easy to plant in but very tricky to walk through. Unfortunately no team members lost the balance or slipped as they were all to focus on getting as many plants in the ground as they could
