Friends of the Bass Strait Islands (FOBSI)
We have worked mainly on boxthorn removal in the Furneaux Islands since 2002/3. We deal with plants ranging in size from tiny 2-leaf seedlings up to behemoths the size of large caravans. We liaise with the local Parks staff, NRM North's Furneaux Facilitator and Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre, and work collaboratively with members of Flinders Island Landcare. We usually fly to Flinders Island and boat to outer islands from there. The pleasure lies in spending time in good company in a gorgeous wild part of the world, contributing to the effort to keep these islands accessible to nesting birds and human visitors.
