Collaboration Key To Saving Critically Endangered Northern Sydney Native
A three-year project to preserve and restore the critically endangered Grevillea caleyi shrub and endangered Duffys Forest ecological community culminated in a final Bushcare day at Ingleside this week
Driven by local volunteers through funding from Greater Sydney Local Land Services and the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), the project focusses on protecting vegetation on the grounds of the Baha’i Temple which is home to the endangered native plant. David Palmer of Pittwater Natural Heritage Association said volunteers had contributed 11,000 volunteer hours over the three year project.
The NSW Government's Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) will provide funding under the Saving our Species Program to continue the successful Bushcare mornings.

Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today unveiled the next stage in the transformation of Mona Vale Hospital, which will ensure it continues to play a vital role in providing high-quality health services to the community.
Following the recent construction of the Beachside Rehabilitation Unit and Mona Vale Community Health Centre, the next phase of the project will enable opportunities for a wider range of health services to be provided at the hospital site than ever before.
Mr Stokes announced the NSW Government is seeking registrations of interest from experienced health care providers to co-locate additional health services at Mona Vale Hospital.
“This initiative supports our community’s desire to ensure Mona Vale Hospital continues to play an integral role in the provision of high-quality health care on the northern beaches into the future,” Rob Stokes said today.
