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 is always so exciting to see the first Small Helmet Orchid, Corybas unguiculatus, in flower. These tiny orchids are just starting to flower at Moggs Creek where there is a large colony growing in leaf litter around the eucalypts.
Fourteen people attended the Angair Bird Walk on Saturday 11 June. The weather did not look promising but in fact turned out to be not as windy as expected.
We had perfect weather, a sunny, mild and calm day with the sun shining through the low vegetation. Common Heath was flowering well. A variety of fungi were seen.
Survival in a coastal environment was the theme for this month’s ramble, and what better beach to observe examples of specific plant adaptations than Red Rocks Beach, west of Pt Addis.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide Angair members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
