This Christmas why not give a gift to someone you do not know and you will never meet, but who will be forever grateful that you thought of them. Donate a small amount of money and you can provide a family with the basic necessities which we, in Australia take for granted.
It is difficult to describe the extent of the concern our community felt for our river in 2015, when we lost an estimated 90% of our beautiful turtles in an approximate 6-week period. Bellingen Riverwatch has empowered our community to transform their concern into dedicated, constructive action.
We need your help to extend our reach and equip more young people to become the change makers our environment needs. We have no doubt that these young people are going to have a positive impact on people, communities and the environment, as many of our existing leaders have. Make more of an impact and become a 'Youth Leading the World Global Seeder'. Your donation allows us to provide training for more young people and enable them to become advocates and change-makers for the environment.
We thank you for your support because we simply can't do it without you.

'Bellingen Riverwatch: Our River, Our Future' is an innovative citizen science program, which aims to create opportunities for scientists and community to work together to monitor and care for the health of the Bellinger and Kalang Rivers.
Collecting monthly water quality data requires consistent long-term effort and a core part of the program will be the development of a group of passionate and dedicated volunteer citizen scientists. Volunteers will be trained in water quality monitoring techniques by lead scientists in the field, and will assist in a monthly water quality snapshot of river health.
All volunteers will receive training to confidently carry out water quality testing in carefully selected sites across the Bellingen Shire. As a volunteer, you will have many opportunities to learn, ongoing feedback and get to contribute to our river and threatened species conservation, including the critically endangered Bellinger River Snapping Turtle.
