Ms Ross explained that among the new activities,
Wildflower lovers will be able to enjoy a stunning

Endangered baby numbat rescued
Rescued baby numbat. Photo Jen Thompson.
Members of Project Numbat assisted in the rescue of a
baby numbat from Frankland River over the weekend.
Project Numbat is a community group that is
helping in the conservation of the endangered numbat
and president Tamara Wilkes-Jones told the Weekly
that she received a call for assistance from Uralla
Wildlife Sanctuary on Friday evening.
“The baby numbat had become separated from his
mother near Perup and required specialist care. With
only 1,000 numbats left in the wild, the finding of a
baby numbat came as a big surprise to all involved,”
Tamara said.
“Once it was confirmed by the Department of Parks
and Wildlife that it was indeed a numbat, we knew
there was no time to waste. Only a handful of people
know how to take care of a numbat. So we got in our
car for the 4-hour drive down – and back”, she
The baby numbat was safely delivered to Perth
Zoo early Saturday morning, where specialist keepers
took over. The baby male numbat has been called
Frankie after the Frankland River, the place where he
was found. He is estimated to be between 6 to 7
months old.

Customers ‘offline’ with

Customers of licensed Telecommunications carrier Sky

encountering significant issues with the new Sky
Muster service from nbn co.
According to the provider these issues have ranged
from provisioning errors and missed appointments to

Sky Muster Satellite NTDs (modems) are also
taking an excessive amount of time to connect to the
satellite and nbn co. has said that the repair could be

Sky Mesh has said that the magnitude of issues that
they have experienced, and are currently experiencing,
has meant that their responsiveness to enquiries from
new and existing customers, for all types of services, is
well below their standards.

Volunteer Marine Rescue Services Awards were
presented across five categories.
“These awards are homage to the hard work and
commitment of our marine rescue volunteers, who
attend many incidents each year that result in the return
of a loved one to their family,” he said.
“The recipients should be extremely proud of what
they do on an ongoing basis to keep Western
Australians safe on the water. The marine rescue
service is a critical part of our emergency response
capability and these volunteers are a reflection of the
calibre of the people we have out there saving lives
every week,” he added.
VMR South Coast Commander Alex Williams told
the Weekly that Walpole VMR were recognised for
their contribution to Marine safety across a broad
“Walpole assist in providing input to DoT Marine
on things such as the local guides, providing the 24/7
log on log off radio coverage for boaties and keeping a
system of markers current that assist people to navigate
the channels in Nornalup Inlet towards the mouth.”
“They offer continued support for the annual South
Coast MARSAREX that draws public attention to the
broader VMR community and promotes awareness,”
Alex explained.

Spring is here, according to
Mother Duck (on the right in the
photo). Our winter-resident pair
of wood ducks delighted us last
week with a clutch of 13
Wood ducks nest in a tree
hole lined with down and lay 710-plus eggs, according to the
literature. So 13 ducklings is
quite an achievement.
The new family swam this
way and that on our lake, went
for a walk, then another swim,
settled on the lake’s island, and
this went on for the rest of the
day. But the next day there was
no sign of them – as has
happened in previous years.
Did they seek shelter in the
forest, or a more secluded water
hole? Who knows how many go
on to survive foxes, feral cats,
kookaburras, ravens and birds of
prey, but let’s hope they were a
lucky 13.

Research into micro-plastics continues at Shelley beach
Further to our recent story on the local research into the
effects of micro-plastics on our environment, Kate
Born Micro-Plastics Coordinator with the Conservation
Council of Western Australia, has commenced her
research project ‘Benchmarking the Accumulation of
Micro-Plastics off South-Western Australia’, in
partnership with UWA.
Kate said that the her research aims at determining
if there are any hotspots, and where these are, for micro
-plastic pollution on the South West Australian coast.
“We have known about plastic pollution in our
marine environment for years, but not the threat from
micro-plastics and fibres. For the first time this project
will engage the community in gathering reliable data to
measure the extent of the problem right here in
Southwest WA,” Kate said.
The project is supported by funding from the WA
Government’s State Natural Resource Management
Program and the Northern Agricultural Catchment
Kate and Jen Mitchell from South West Catchment
Council, who are also supporting the project, visited
Shelley and Bellanger Beach accompanied by Gary
Muir from WOW cruises last Wednesday.
There they collected two samples of beach sand for
their project.
18 - September 21, 2016

beach. Photo K. Born.
Kate said that the project will collect 200 samples of
beach sand between Geraldton and Esperance.
Kate emphasised that this project would not be
possible without the help of supporters, conservation
groups, community volunteers and Citizen Scientists.
She said that the combination of community
involvement and extent of sampling is unique in WA.
To get involved in this project sampling sites east of
Walpole are still available.
