OzFish Unlimited contributed funding towards the operation of the River Repair Bus in Dubbo. Thanks to our Inland Waterways Chapter and the IWRA (Inland Waterways Rejuvenation Association) the bus is currently being utilized as part of the work for the dole program. The bus is used to transport participants and tools to and from the river bank when undertaking aquatic habitat restoration activities such as riparian plantings. The bus is currently operating under its second, 6 month contract.
