Angair, established in 1969, is an active conservation group dedicated to the protection of indigenous flora and fauna and to maintaining the natural beauty of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet and their local environments.
The online Angair Nature Show complements the annual Wildflower & Art Weekend which this year will be held on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September in the Anglesea Community Hall between 10 am and 4 pm.

Who We Are
While visiting Anglesea in spring of 1968, Edith Lawn innocently picked spider orchids for her art class to draw and learnt not only how much the locals prized the district’s flora, but also that she had broken the law.
Edith was horrified by her actions and wondered if other visitors were unaware of the laws protecting the indigenous fauna and flora. To make amends, she initiated a public meeting in Anglesea on 27 April 1969, to establish a society to protect the local flora and fauna. And so, Angair (Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Protection of Flora and Fauna) was born.
