One of the greatest threats to our unique flora in the South West is from the plant disease Phytophthora Dieback. 40% of our native flora is affected, making the South Coast Phytophthora Dieback Forum a must for everyone who works in or enjoys the great outdoors. This South Coast NRM event provides insight into what’s happening on disease and management in our backyard, and what we can do to help stop its spread. Topics cover latest WA and global research; local case studies including Stirling Range National Park; regional operations updates plus tools and resources for planning and management. Join experts at one of the group workshops for a unique chance to work through and discuss management tools. This is only the second time the South Coast has hosted such an event so don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity. Funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program, supported by Royalties for Regions makes this event available to all.

How can watching The Voice make a difference against Dieback?

on Tuesday, 07 June 2016.

A new Dieback infomercial has started screening this week on WIN TV – catch it in the ad breaks and find out how you can limit the spread of Phytophthora Dieback! The infomercial which focuses on south-west WA has been specially made for Project Dieback, and builds on the successful 2-year run of a similar advertisement screened in Albany cinema.

The ad will feature during primetime programs such as The Footy Show, Getaway, The Today Show and The Big Bang Theory for the next six weeks – and is designed to capture a wider demographic than would be reached by traditional means such as newspapers or leaflets.

Can’t wait to see it and want a sneak peek? Check out the ad on the South Coast NRM YouTube channel.
