How quickly it comes around. Last Sunday I had a most informative zoom meeting with our District Governor Craig Dowling, where he learned a little about myself, and our Club, I too learned a little about him, his expectations of me and our Club. We look forward to his visit on 1st August so have your questions ready.
I thank Simon Sickerdick for taking the meeting last week, I hear I missed a great speaker, Mark Smith.
Our condolences and thoughts are with Jacquie Best on the passing of her brother and also to PP John Whimpress on the passing of June Lewis last Thursday, there will be a private funeral service this Thursday for June.
I look forward to our club assembly to hear what our Directors have in store for the coming year. See you Tuesday night.

Monarto Safari Park

Mark Smith is Manager of Conservation Research and Animal Welfare at Monarto Safari Park adjacent to Murray Bridge. He studied marine biology, has worked in Seaworld for 7 years, started the Aquarium in Barcelona, then went to the Portugal Aquarium and now with Monarto Safari Park. The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge has worked on two conservation projects with the Park and now plans to assist in a third. The Mallee Sanctuary project. Mark updated us on the first of these the Mallee Emu Wren Conservation project. The Murray Bridge Rotarians built several cages to trial the Rufus Emu Wren building knowledge on husbandry of Wrens. The research knowledge gained is now to be applied to the Mallee Emu Wren which will now be in a breeding program at the Park to release back to the wild. The Plains mouse is the second project and two hundred have already been released. Our newest project is in support of the Mallee Sanctuary which is being developed near the new Display Centre and Hotel. Rotarian Rob Walters has already proposed some planning and shelter structure design. Some of the other interesting projects include the endangered Orange Bellied Parot which occurs from the Coorong to Tasmania, the Pygmy Bluetongue Lizard, Yellow footed rock wallaby, Western Swamp Tortoise, the Black footed Rock Wallaby Warru, the glossy black cockatoo, Bettongs, Stick Nest Rats, and the Red tailed Phascogale which occurs from the Murraylands to WA. Fenced conservation areas are required to restrict feral cats and other threats.They also have a program with the local Ngarindjeri. Also the have strong links in supporting international conservation projects like the Jane Goodall Foundation and the ZIMS Animal Data Collection Project. A further point of interest was the stocking of native fish in the waterholes within the Park. They certainly punch well above their weight and our Murray Bridge Rotarians are very proud to support them. The Environment is the seventh area of focus for Rotary International.
Rotarian John Scarvelis
