Friends of Erindale Rd Bushland Talk

Wednesday 5 June from 18:30 to 20:00


Marie Giorgi and Sonya Elek have learned the importance of having a detailed strategy to create and maintain an effective campaign to save an important remnant Banksia woodland in Hamersley. 


As foundation members of the Friends of Erindale Rd Bushland (FoERB), they and other members are facing a familiar story – their local bushland is proposed to be replaced by housing development – areas of Threatened Ecological Community are seemingly not exempt, significant and highly sought after Banksia and Tuart woodland, habitat areas for the threatened Carnaby Cockatoos and other local native fauna.


Patches where there are endangered plants and wildlife, are part of the Banksia woodland threatened ecological community on the Swan Coastal Plain need our loud voices to make the community and Government aware of the continual threat of degradation and development. 

Marie and Sonya have met manylike-mindedpeople along the way. With a strong committed group, meetings have been held with localand State decision makers, and have the support of the City of Stirling – a relationship conservation groups encourage in the pursuit of protecting our endangered communities.  

In theAutumn 2022 UBTFriends ofErindaleRd Bushland wrote a piece on tips for writing articles to theeditor. The Autumn 2024 UBT  describes their experience in creating petitions to Parliament. 

UBC will follow up this presentation with an advocacy skillsworkshop for Bushcare groups on 23rd June! 

Set aside Wednesday, 5 June to be inspired by Marie and Sonya’s campaigning experience and how to put a spotlight on threats to our bushland.
