The Aurora Expeditions office team joined Conservation Volunteers Australia at Cronulla last month for a day of ‘Hard Yakka’. Swapping their bikinis for spades and shovels, the team assisted on the Kurnell Bio Diversity Project, helping to restore and stabilse the sand dunes along Elouera beach.
Proclaimed the International Year of Biodiversity by the United Nations, this year people all over the world are working to safeguard the irreplaceable natural wealth and reduce biodiversity loss. Doing our bit, the Aurora team worked hard pulling 100sq metres of weeds and planting over 300 native stems which will eventually provide food and shelter for an abundance of local native fauna including crabs, lizards and birds such as the corella and the Australian Falcon.
A few sore muscles later (and hopefully a few less kgs!), the team would still like to say a big thank you to CVA for letting our Aurora team get involved.
