Cape Life recently took on two work experience students studying Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management at the Bunbury South West Institute of Technology (SWIT). Jess and Sarah have so far processed a variety of Banksia seed and have begun putting together a herbarium comprised of local species collected for seed and future regeneration projects and have done a great job so far. They will continue their work experience over a four week period.
Brook Devine and Tony Swarts also spent a day with the Gnalang Boodja Green Army team in Collie. The team is being coordinated by Conservation Volunteers and has been carrying out restoration works in the Collie Shire. The Cape Life lads took them through a day of seed collection along the Collie River and collected a variety of species including Casuarinas, Banksias, Blackbutt and Balga. The team worked well and collected over a kilogram of seed that will be used for revegetation projects in conjunction with the Shire of Collie.
Cape Life looks forward to continuing and expanding their involvement with providing training, experience and educational opportunities for students and volunteers keen to become involved in the Conservation and Land Management field.
