With this project listing, we're keen to identify and share the flora and fauna seen by our members and friends - in gardens and the local area (Albury-Wodonga and surrounds). Feel free to add your sighting to our project, and to any others that are relevant! Seed Savers Albury-Wodonga is an incorporated group and member of the national seed savers network. Our goals include encouraging the use and saving of seed from locally appropriate and useful plants. We’re particularly keen on food plants, but any beneficial plant is of interest to us. We promote home food production and the saving of open pollinated seeds by running workshops, hosting guest speakers, maintaining a seed bank and by encouraging networking and sharing of practical skills between our members and guests.

    Sighted on the road yesterday evening. Relocated it to some foliage overnight and is still there this morning. Unsure if it can fly. Wings missing significant sections, so from these angles can see parts of both upperside and underside patterning. 'Tails' missing.

    Seen resting the grass of an urban nature strip. Looking very worn - much of its wings were missing. Only poor phone photos. Took them as I didn't recognise this butterfly. Wondering if it might be a Tailed Emperor?

    Saw this stunning katydid while gardening. It wasn't on, nor near, a Eucalypt (their preferred habitat as I understand). It posed for photos before inching away from me and then taking a big jump to another part of the garden. Beautiful colors and patterns.
