About Friends of the Gippsland Lakes Inc.

Posted on Saturday 8 December 2018

The Friends of the Gippsland Lakes, Parks and Reserves is an independent, non-profit, membership-based group that acts as a voice for the vast environmentally important Gippsland Lakes system, from Sale to Lakes Entrance.

As human impacts and environmental changes increase we provide opportunity for everyone to have a say in the future of our lakes.

Our primary interest is initiatives that preserve, maintain, restore the health of the lakes system.

FoGL are keen collaborators with the many other environmental groups, agencies and people around East Gippsland.

“We so lucky to have such a unique ecosystem as our backyard” says President, Heather Oke, “and it’s imperative that we value, protect and enhance the natural environment and biodiversity of our special, Ramsar-listed lakes system so that it can continue to be enjoyed by our children, the generations to come”

FOGL Submission to the Victorian Legislative Council

Posted on Friday 17 June 2016

It appears to FOGL that under the current regime we are destroying critical habitat and putting our precious biodiversity at risk under the misguided and unfounded assumption that doing so will protect private property, when overwhelmingly the scientific evidence indicates burning the bush will NOT achieve this protection. This seems seriously flawed and will lead to increased environmental degradation…

North Silt Jetties (The Cut) rejuvenation

Posted on Saturday 26 March 2016

Recent working bee out on north arm of silt jetties – mainly for plant maintenance and rubbish collection.  Good weather and comaraderie made for a great morning.

This is such a beautiful and usually (outside of duck shooting season) peaceful part of the Gippsland Lakes –  a wonderful place in which to spend several hours working.

As usual, we collected several very large bags of rubbish including wads of fishing line, bait boxes, drink cans and bottles, food wrappers and a lot of toilet paper.  Some disgusting piles of fresh human waste with toilet paper piled on top were discovered.  Pity some of the people who use this area just rubbish it.

When we finished the area was almost pristine and the plantings look cared for.
