Our story

Wildlife Queensland Fraser Coast Branch has a very long and credible history in the protection of local wildlife. Our branch engages members and the local community through a range of activities including:

  • our monthly Nature Walks Program
  • monthly Wildlife Talks in Hervey Bay and Maryborough Libraries
  • our seasonal Fraser Coast Bioblitz Program
  • school visits and workshops
  • representation on the Environmental Advisory Group with Fraser Coast Regional Council.

 

What we do

In 2022 and 2023, Wildlife Queensland Fraser Coast Branch is making two donations to the University of the Sunshine Coast to sponsor two Bachelor of Animal Ecology students to conduct their Honours projects. The first project is eastern grey kangaroos in urbanising environments, and the second is greater gliders in our region.

Other branch activities include:

  • production and publication of the quarterly 20–24 page newsletter Wambaliman (see below) in both hardcopy and electronic form. It includes reports of meetings and events as well as opinion pieces of members and nature notes.
  • a monthly Wildlife Matters column in a local newspaper and various local newsletters
  • an active source of information and exchange of thoughts on our Facebook page.

All these activities go towards encouraging branch members and the community to understand and appreciate the wildlife and natural places of the Fraser Coast.

Fraser Coast January BioBlitz: birds, bats, bugs & more…

Strong wind may have made photography difficult and heat added to the intractability of insects – which sometimes zipped around too much to have their portraits taken – but Wildlife Queensland’s Fraser Coast Branch members and nature enthusiasts managed to make more than 430 observations during their first BioBlitz of 2022.
