Ever since FIDO’s Beach to Birrabeen BioBlitz, I have been ever alert to discover anything ‘new’ or ‘different’ on K’gari. I was always interested, but my interest has been lifted to a new level.

Peter Shooter had previously discovered one very large rambling specimen the Happy Valley dump. This was the first specimen I had seen in Eurong.

FIDO’s Bush Regeneration program has been operating volunteer week-long weeding operations since 2005. However, the number of weeding operations has increased progressively from one in 2005 to 10 in 2016–17. This is to keep pace with the increasing threat, and number, of weed invaders.
FIDO has just installed a second online weather station on K’gari at Eurong as part of an ongoing FIDO program to capture weather data from a broader area to assist in environmental monitoring. Through FIDO’s website, anyone in the world with access to the internet can see the temperature, barometric pressure, wind direction and rainfall at both Happy Valley and Eurong in real time and for the previous 14 days. FIDO also feeds the data to Weather Underground and the Bureau of Meteorology, where it can also be seen. They also add FIDO’s weather station input to their permanent storage.
