Henrietta Mooney is our newly appointed Hunter Regional Landcare Coordinator. Her role is to support the capacity of the local Landcare coordinators and HRLN to deliver on programs with a focus on regional initiatives.
I have been fortunate to have lived on the northern beaches of Sydney and in the Upper Hunter, enjoying nature in a vast array of environments. Now settled in Newcastle, I enjoy wandering and working in our bushland, coastal areas and grasslands.
I have worked as an Ecologist since 1995 with non-profit and government organisations, almost always involved in Landcare in urban and rural areas. I am also a Natural History Illustrator, which has allowed me to document Australia’s unique flora and fauna in a different way, inspired by Naturalists such as Ferdinand Bauer.
I have always found Landcare to be a wonderful way of bringing people together to care for and preserve our natural environment, but it also builds on the strength and resilience of our communities. My wish is for Landcare across the country to grow and continue to provide a voice for healthy landscapes and healthy people.
