Wildlife Queensland recently hosted a most enjoyable evening at the Ship Inn in Brisbane to celebrate the launch of a very important book: Queensland's Threatened Animals.
Attended by three of the editors as well as researchers from universities, museums, the Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) and CSIRO, as well as many others involved in threatened species conservation and management.
Chief editor Lee Curtis started off proceedings with a ‘WOW – we did it!’ It certainly is a marvellous achievement and a great resource for anyone and everyone involved in threatened animal recovery and management in Queensland.
Edited by Lee K Curtis, Andrew J Dennis, Keith R McDonald, Peter M Kyne and Stephen JS Debus, the book is a culmination of four years work by over 200 volunteers, experts from all over Australia. It includes species profiles and information on who is doing what, when, where, how and why.
To purchase a copy, here is more information about the book.
