Angair was established in 1969. It 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.
This year Angair has again organised an online Nature Show to complement the annual Wildflower and Art Weekend. Through the Nature Show, Angair aims to share and encourage you to enjoy and discover as much of our beautiful environment, its fauna and flora and local conservation efforts as is possible.
An additional theme for this year is Protect, focusing on the many threatened habitats and species of flora and fauna in the area.
There is a wealth of articles and activities for all ages, and we encourage you to Wonder, Protect, Explore, Learn, Create and Play. We hope you enjoy your visit to the Angair Nature Show website and will consider supporting and joining Angair.
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.
