ANGAIR (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Preservation 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 50 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, there are lots of different ways you can get involved and support us.
It was a difficult decision as to a choice of site between Flaxbourne Rd and Harvey St for our October nature ramble as a wealth of orchids were flowering in each area.
Angair representatives were recently briefed by Parks Vic/DELWP fire management staff on developments with the Strategic Fuel Break program and the intended Spring Burn program.
This is a wonderful time of the year for observing our many flowering orchids. The Waxlip Orchids, Glossodia major, are looking spectacular throughout the area, with shades of purple and blue and occasionally white.
On our September bird walk we saw an abundance of birds, particularly water birds, at Blue Lake at Ocean Grove, and Lake Lorne at Drysdale – 42 species in total.
The COVID and weather gods combined to give us perfect conditions for our August bird walk – our first walk outside the Surf Coast for nearly two years. Our destination was the wonderful Serendip Wildlife Sanctuary at Lara, where 150 bird species have been recorded.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
