Legislative Assembly Hansard – 23 November 2021 – F.A.W.N.A 30 Year Anniversary
Mrs. LESLIE WILLIAMS (Port Macquarie) — Congratulations to the local members from For Australian Wildlife Needing Aid [F.A.W.N.A)] who have excelled in service and volunteerism particularly over the past 12 months.
This year F.A.W.N.A celebrated 30 years of caring for sick and injured wildlife on the Mid North Coast following its formation in 1991.
To mark the significant milestone the following members were acknowledged with Citations:
- Nola Williams
- Boris Lovriha
- Jodie Isaac
- Wendy Bawn
- Pat Davey
- Anke De Reuver
- Warwick Madden
- Carol Riley
- Eileen Gleeson
- Barbara McLaren
- Amanda Boardman OAM
- Cheyne Flanagan
- June Le Pla OAM.
All of these volunteers have gone above and beyond to provide special care and attention to our native wildlife who would otherwise struggle to survive.
Often members incur out-of-pocket expenses to treat and nurse our beloved animals back to good health with recent droughts, bushfires, floods and land clearing causing devastating impacts to populations.
As is tradition, the Bryce Laut Member Award was presented to Amanda Boardman and Jill Eagleton recognising their outstanding contribution to F.A.W.N.A over many years.
You are all an inspiration to so many and we truly thank you for your service.
