For my birthday this year, in lieu of gifts/flowers, I would like to ask you to support a cause close to my heart.
Bio·R is a small grassroots charity based in Adelaide who are doing amazing work to help protect our biodiversity through reconstructing critical habitat for native wildlife.
Did you know that the Mt Lofty region was cleared so much that by the 1970s, only 10% of the original native habitat remained.
Thankfully, the state government at the time introduced laws to prevent anymore clearance, however at 10%, it is expected that we will lose half of our woodland bird species.
In order to give these species their best chance at survival, data shows that we need to increase this habitat to 30% (which is no walk in the park!).
This is exactly what Bio·R is doing, and your donation will help them on their mission.
