Ghost Net Art
Edition #61, Ghost Net Arts of the Sea People

Hi #firstname#, 

2019 marks the start of an exciting year for Wildiaries. 

So many of your chosen holiday experiences are at the coast and marine conservation plays a significant role in what we do as well as on the lives of millions of people. So it's important to have a focus on supporting community conservation.

We are delighted to have, as part of our network, many silent achievers who even though you may not have heard of them, are award-winning for their impact on the environment and the work they do with local communities.

One of these is Sue Ryan, who operates Ghost Net Art. Some of the team that developed this, alongside Ghost Nets Australia (Banksia Award, Sustainable Oceans Award) have gone on to create profoundly high-impact projects supporting coastal communities and protecting marine habitats. 

In this edition, we have two stories from the teams, including one that links neatly with our current competition promotion to WIN a Trip to the Eyre Peninsula with Xplore Eyre as some of the nets were sourced from Port Lincoln.  

Remember, For all Wildiaries subscribers, there's an exclusive 12% off any trip with them to Eyre Peninsula and up to $100 to redeem in Wildiaries flight vouchers.

Meanwhile, we're off to Raja Ampat end of this month and will be reporting again from there. Spaces on next year's epic trip are limited so head over to find out more here.

Best wishes,  


Simon Mustoe
Founder, Wildiaries

About Ghost Nets

Xplore Eyre Video

When Ghost Nets Australia began, the combination of science and art brought the Aboriginal communities of northern Australia together with fishing communities in remote eastern Indonesia. The project has been instrumental in cleaning up ghost gear in the Arafura Seas, supporting Indigenous rangers and saving endangered sea turtles. This is the story of a Ghost Net ...






Xplore Eyre Tours

Enter to WIN a $3,000 trip to the Eyre Peninsula

In 2014 we first met Craig Haslam 'Hassie' (Xplore Eyre), a hard-working bloke from the Eyre Peninsula, who hosted us with Australian swimming legend Libby Trickett, for a long-weekend. So we're delighted to be revisiting Hassie's back yard this month ... an area affectionately termed 'Australia's Seafood Frontier'.

Just a 4-5 hour flight from Sydney to Melbourne, if you're into food, wine, epic landscapes, quiet beaches or (for the most adventurous) you want to go swimming with the local wildlife, Port Lincoln is worth at least a weekend break.

Xplore Eyre have given you chance to WIN an incredible $3,000 travel prize so head on over an enter.
