Family (Nest of Supporters) Membership 2022


Family – Nest of Supporters Membership

Proudly support the work of Gould League through our Nest of Supporters family membership package in 2022 which includes:

  • A one-year membership for the whole family
  • Annual badge x 2 ( featuring  the Weedy Seadragon)
  • Other badge x 3 (Whale, Dolphin and Biscuit Seastar all found here in Victoria at certain times of the year)
  • Australian Guide to Book (2022’s book is Australian Guide to Beaches and Rockpools which features the Weedy Seadragon!)
  • Pledge certificate
  • Folded posters x 2 (2022’s posters are ‘Seahorses and Seadragons plus ‘Fish of Southern Australia’)
  • 20% off bookshop products (great for when you are looking for a present with a purpose)
  • Voting rights

Our badge, books and poster this years features the  Weedy Seadragon also known as the common seadragon in recognition of the UN year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture. Its scientific name is Phyllopteryx taeniolatus and it is a member of the Syngnathidae family.  It is related to seahorses, pipehorses and pipefish.  It became Victoria’s official marine emblem by public nomination in 2002.  You may recall in 2021 Sir David Attenborough lent his support to a Mornington Peninsula community’s battle to prevent the partial demolition of a wooden jetty, arguing it provides valuable habitat for the threatened Weedy Seadragon.  So together let’s do what we can to protect this important species found right here in Port Philip Bay.

Thank you for your contribution as without this support, the Gould League could not continue it’s important work supporting teachers and educating the next generation to protect and support our precious environment.
