Assistance for fire affected Landholders

Landholders and Land managers in the South East of NSW have experienced significant losses to environment, infrastructure and livestock during these catastrophic bush-fires. Molonglo Conservation Group wish to extend our deepest sympathy to those affected and our hope that there is some relief soon.  We wish to advise that our prioritisation of projects and field work will be focused on assisting with bush-fire recovery for as long as necessary. Please contact us if our staff can provide you with any assistance in your recovery efforts at an administrative or practical level. 
 
The following information has been provided by South East Local Land Services.  Please take the time to read through this information and follow their advice. Please share this information with persons who are affected by the bush-fires directly and also those whose emotional well being has been compromised:  

South East Local Land Services are trying to get the  Agricultural and Animal Services hotline  number out far and wide in the community:

Ph: 1800 814 647
Please look after yourselves and each other.  Take the time to read through the attached documents and when you get to the 'Let's talk - RAMHP' information, take the time to actually check off what you are and are not doing to look after yourself and see if you can add one thing to the list of things that will prioritise your well-being and that of those around you.
