Friends of the Cockburn Wetlands Education Centre

 Harry deJong's slide collection


The Friends were bequeathed in 2010 Harry de Jong's photographic slide collection which will keep the Friends busy for some time. There are over five thousand slides spanning a period of 70 years which all require cataloging and digitally imaging so that they can be made available for public use. The subjects include, plants, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fungi and spiders. The collection has historic importance as well as providing a beautiful snapshot of our native wildlife.  If you would like to help out in managing this collection please contact us as your help would be much appreciated. Below is a small example of Harry's wonderful photographs.
