We held our 2016 Best Friend Award Ceremony in November, with Victoria's environment minister speaking very positively about the told Friends groups play in caring for our protected areas.
In this edition of FriendsNet we take a look at the value of preserving our parks. Did you know tourists spend $1.4 billion a year visiting Victoria's parks? We also look at the relationship between Mountain Pygmy-possums and the Bogong Moth, and report back on a 'fungi foray with the Friends of South Surrey.
After receiving more than 300 responses to our online survey and a well-attended strategy meeting in April it’s time to consider our new direction.
