The Wildlife Roadkill Prevention Association aims to reduce the roadkill of native animals on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia. In 2005, the association was formed to address wildlife roadkill and raise awareness of broader conservation issues for our area.
The Pittwater Natural Heritage Association was formed to act to protect and preserve the Pittwater areas major and most valuable asset - its natural heritage.
Pittwater Natural Heritage Association seeks to raise awareness and provide information and advice to members on issues such as:
Native Tree Canopy
Identification of trees local to your particular area. What to plant to replace dead or dying trees, and how to care for trees. The characteristic form of the native tree canopy is a major contributor to Pittwater's sense of place.
"Bush Friendly" Gardens
Selecting plants for your garden that will live in harmony with nearby bushland and provide habitat for native animals and birds.
Building and Landscaping
Promoting practices which preserve and protect the visual qualities of the landform, preserve soil stability and prevent erosion of steep slopes and siltation of waterways.
Information on noxious and environmental weeds, weed identification and methods of control and eradication.
Living with Wildlife
Maintaining habitat and wildlife corridors for our rich and diverse native fauna. Understanding the impacts of introduced birds and animals and uncontrolled domestic pets.
Keeping our Waterways Healthy
Using and enjoying our waterways and estuaries whilst maintaining appropriate water quality and habitat for aquatic creatures. Caring for the streams, wetlands, saltmarsh and mangrove systems that are an integral part of our waterways.
Rock Platforms, Beaches and Dunes
Protecting and preserving the plant and animal communities on rock platforms. Restoration and regeneration of dune systems and maintenance of their stability.

Marine Wildlife Rescue Group On The Central Coast
A new wildlife group was launched on the Central Coast on Saturday, December 10, 2022.
Marine Wildlife Rescue Central Coast (MWRCC) had its official launch at The Entrance Boat Shed at 10am.
The group comprises current and former members of ASTR, ORRCA, Sea Shepherd, Greenpeace, WIRES and Wildlife ARC, as well as vets, academics, and people from all walks of life.
Well known marine wildlife advocate and activist Cathy Gilmore is spearheading the organisation.
“We believe that it is time the Central Coast looked after its own marine wildlife, and not be under the control or directed by groups that aren’t based locally,” Gilmore said.
“We have the local knowledge and are set up to respond and help injured animals more quickly.
“This also means that donations and money fundraised will go directly into helping our local marine creatures, and not get tied up elsewhere in the state.”
The organisation plans to have rehabilitation facilities and rescue kits placed in strategic locations around the region.
MWRCC will also be in touch with Indigenous groups to learn the traditional importance of the local marine environment and its inhabitants.
“We want to work with these groups and share knowledge between us,” Gilmore said.
“This is an opportunity to help save and protect our local marine wildlife, so if you have passion and commitment, then you are more than welcome to join us.”
Marine Wildlife Rescue Central Coast has a Facebook page where you may contact members. Visit: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100076317431064

Running This Week: The Chiltern Trail On The Verge Of Spring 2023 By Kevin Murray And Joe Mills
August 10, 2023
A terrific walk on a terrific day... 6.8 kilometres on the Chiltern Track at Ingleside, with Glenys and Joe. Whew! I took a picture or two that you might enjoy...
(Did I mention it was 6.8 kilometres?)
Chiltern has a meaning of, relating to, or being chalky, sandy, gravelly, and loamy soils of England that are naturally dry and lie in dry situations.
The Warringah Shire Council meeting held December 20th 1954 records:
Street Names – Shire Engineer’s Report
h) Stating that attempts are being made to establish a Progress Association in the area between Ingleside and Church Point, the proposed name being ‘’Cicada Glen’’, that letters from the provisional Hon. Secretary refer to Chiltern Road, running north from Mona Vale Road some distance west of the road to the new sanitary depot; and suggesting that the Council officially name this road Chiltern Road. Resolved, - That this suggestion be adopted. (Crs. Hewitt, McKay)
The Chiltern Trail is a firetrail that goes from the end of Chiltern Road in Ingleside down to McCarrs Creek Road.
This affords you great views over the district, stretches to t he Lower Gledhill Falls, where McCarrs Creek plunges over a cliff into a pool. You can also access from the other side of the creek by following McCarrs Creek from The Duckhole.
You can also access Crystal Creek, which is to the east of the trail as it flows down to McCarrs Creek Road.
Length: 6.8 km - you need to be fit will take 2-3 hours in and back. Best walked in Autumn, Winter or Spring.
One for those of us who aren't quite as fit as this happy trio - thank you very much Glenys, Kevin and Joe - BEAUTIFUL! Head over to the Pictures page and enjoy this week's Pictorial.

There will be no better way to spring into Spring and Summer 2023 than tuning in to the sounds coming from Pittwater band and former Barrenjoey High School alumni The Rions this September through November. To back up newly released EP 'Minivan' the boys will be on the road, taking it to the streets, and nightclubs, in a tour that stretches from Queensland to Tassie and even a jaunt over to Western Australia. Although only one local gig is scheduled so far, at Dee Why and 18+, included are performances with the Grapevine Gathering national tour, indicating The Rions are happy to inspire locals to join the road trip phenomenon to 'see and be in other places' during Australia's warmer months.First forming as a band following a 2016 high school talent show, when they were in Year 7, their music teacher Mr Stone (father of Angus & Julia) saw something special and encouraged the boys to get gigging.
The name stems from the inability of Harley to pronounce the word ‘lion’ when a toddler; he would pronounce it ‘rion’. He had been telling fellow band members about this when the organisers asked them what they were going to be called and the spontaneous response from his band mates was ‘The Rions!’.
The band consists of Noah Blockley (lead vocals, bass guitar), Harley Wilson (guitar), Asher McLean (guitar), and Tom Partington (drums).
They started performing in our area at the age of 13 and have ventured through a multitude of genres, citing Arctic Monkeys, Lime Cordiale, Spacey Jane, and Dayglow as their musical influences.
Besides being talented musicians they also have ‘put back’ into our local community – just some of these 'fronting ups' were making music at the opening of the Avalon Youth Hub in 2018, playing the Breath Festival in 2019 and teaming up with Marvell in 2020 to help 2019/2020 fire impacted Mogo Public School at Batemans Bay when BHS was raising funds for these youngsters.
At just 17 years old, their natural talent and hard work helped them create a loyal following, winning a spot in the Bluesfest Busking Comp Grand Final, taking out the Northern Composure Audience Choice Award and winning Triple j’s Unearthed High 2021 with their single ‘Night Light' produced alongside Callum Howell (Ocean Alley).
The win built on the momentum of debut singles ‘Sadie‘, ‘Halfway Out‘ and ‘Head Still Hurts’, followed by ‘Disassociation’ and ‘Anakin’, each stronger than the last.
Since, The Rions racked up some 10 million streams worldwide, gone back-to-back in consecutive Hottest 100 countdowns and drawn praise from the likes of even the most unlikely of fans in Avatar’s Sam Worthington. Night Light would land at No. 51 on triple j’s Hottest 100 countdown for 2021, and they’d follow it up with Anakin which appeared at No. 64 in 2022.
The Rions runs as Profile of the Week this Issue. A taster:

Pictures From The Past: Palm Beach In 1921
Warringah Shire Council's Minutes from Meetings records, from the Meeting of 19th September, 1921:
Palm Beach (Item 26). The Palm Beach Progress Association's letter, 2/9/21, urging erection of dressing sheds at Palm Beach, and offering to arrange for cost of erection, if Council provide the material, was read in conjunction with the report. Resolved. - (Crs. Hitchcock, Quirk) That the proposal be approved, £5 to be voted for the supply of the necessary material, the (Vote) sheds to be in accordance with the plan submitted by Mr. Kerr, and to be completed to the Council's satisfaction.

Find What You're Looking For During Skills Week
National Skills Week starts Monday 21 August.
People across NSW are being encouraged to explore and celebrate everything vocational education and training offers during National Skills Week, which starts on Monday 21 August.
The Skills Week theme, 'What are you looking for?', highlights the exciting education and career opportunities offered through Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathways.
NSW Department of Education Secretary Murat Dizdar said Skills Week aimed to overturn out-of-date perceptions about the opportunities vocational education offered.
“Our job market is changing rapidly, and the vocational education sector has a key role to play in future-proofing existing and emerging industries,” Mr Dizdar said.
“Vocational education will continue to support the traditional trades but is also crucial for new and emerging industries. For example, our clean energy future will provide terrific jobs based on many of our current trades.”
Mr Dizdar said the line between a university, or a vocational education and training pathway was increasingly being blurred.
“Vocational education and training sits alongside university as an equal partner in the tertiary education sector and the future lies in increased collaboration between these two,” he said.
“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.”
He said Skills Week was also an important time to highlight the work done in opening young people’s eyes to the career opportunities available through the School-based Apprenticeships and Traineeships (SBATs) program in NSW public schools.
Almost 3000 students are currently undertaking SBATs in NSW public schools, a 9.5 per cent increase in participation that is bucking the national trend.
According to the National Centre for Vocational Education Research, NSW has almost 113,000 trainees and apprentices in training, which is more than any other state or territory.
Mr Dizdar said in Skills Week it was also important to highlight the incredible support of employers, who mentor students through their training, and the sector’s world-class educators.
Now in its 13th year, Skills Week celebrates the skills, talents, and career pathways of students, apprentices, trainees, and the wide range of industries they work in.
National Skills Week takes place from 21-27 August, with a launch at the Parliament of NSW on 22 August.
