Friends of Alberton West raffle to raise funds for wildlife

VFA members Friends of Alberton West Forest are hosting an online raffle to raise much needed funds for wildlife surveying equipment for their local group. The Alberton West State forests have incredible diversity, with its closeness to both Wilson’s Promontory and the Strzeleckis makes it a host for many of Victoria’s most endangered plants and animals.

The forest largely hasn't been surveyed, so this a great opportunity to support the local group to save the habitat of the genetically unique Strzelecki Koala, the Powerful Owl, Lace Monitor, Bush Orchids, Greater Glider and endangered Gang Gangs. Help them raise funds for scientific equipment to assist the group to record the endangered forest species. These tools will enable them to run education programs for all ages within the community. 

Victorian Forest Alliance official launch!

Thank you so so much to everyone who made it to our official launch on the 12 and 13 Feb - especially to all the volunteers who helped to run the event, Black Spark Cultural Centre for hosting us, and all the musicians for making it so special. Over 60 artists including Bern Emmerichs, Belinda Rogers, Hans Heysen, John Wolseley and Sue Anderson generously donated pieces for this amazing fundraising auction.
The art auction was a huge success and we raised just over $34,000!! Plus an additional $2000 from merch from The Great Tree Project. Thank you so much to all the artists who donated their work.
