Our Story

History - early days - what we have achieved

Vision

 

The Friends of Eastern Otways is an organization whose members share an interest in the natural environment and who would like to learn more about the Great Otway National Park and its flora and fauna, particularly its Eastern section.

Goals

 

The Friends are committed to protecting the Park for all to appreciate and enjoy, working in partnership with Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). The Friends are involved in a variety of environmental activities:


• Protecting flora and fauna and maintaining and enriching biodiversity through removal of environmental weeds and revegetation with indigenous species.


• Monitoring flora and fauna within the Park through surveys, spotlighting activities and the use of remote cameras.


• Developing awareness and educating the community about the environmental values of the Great Otway National Park through walks in various areas.


• Developing our knowledge of the national park system through visiting other parks
