ANGAIR (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Protection of Flora and Fauna) is dedicated to protecting our indigenous flora and fauna, and to maintaining the natural beauty of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet and their local environments. It was established in 1969 through the influence of a local resident Mrs Edith Lawn. Read more about our achievements over the last 40 years.
We hope you enjoy your visit to the ANGAIR website and will consider joining our Society. If you are interested in the environment, want to learn more about the flora and fauna found in it, and wish to conserve it for future generations, you will gain enormous satisfaction and enjoyment from being an ANGAIR member.
The Get to Know our Tracks walk on 27 July included variety – a sandy beach, heathlands, fire trails, riverbank, cliff tops and some spectacular views.
I always love August, watching and waiting to see what will appear with the coming of spring and warmer weather.
ANGAIR was represented at the recent Alcoa Community Consultation Network meeting, as were several other Community Organisations.
We had a group of 12 and the 8.5km walk on 27th June was very pleasant through tall trees.

Pincushion Hakea Hakea laurina
This indigenous Western Australian plant is a quick-growing, dense, large shrub or small tree to 4 m high with narrow elliptical leaves to 15 cm. The Pincushion Hakea flowers during autumn and winter, producing deep pink-red, round, pincushion flowers with cream ‘pins’. Hakea species tend to rapidly invade the environment, especially in coastal situations and regenerate prolifically after burning.
More details about this weed and how to treat it can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
