The Friends of the Western Swamp Tortoise has been successful in obtaining a Lotterywest grant, presented to members of the group at the Ellen Brook Reserve by Swan MLA, Jaye Radisich. The money is for display materials to enhance our ability to make the general public aware of the plight of the Western Swamp Tortoise.
With the purchase of a portable display board, and the production of some of the photos taken by our talented members, we will soon have a static display which can be erected at Libraries, Schools, Community Centres and special events. A user-friendly brochure will also be produced to ensure any members who are interested in joining us have contact details easily available. The grant will also allow us to upgrade our website.
