|Welcome to Wildlife Queensland Bayside Branch
The Cicada Film Festival – a short film competition for youth was initiated by Bayside Branch in 2011 and it’s on again! Entries close 7 May 2019 so, if you or someone you know is under 25 years of age it’s a great chance to hear what youth have to say on environmental issues. Premiere Screening & Awards Night is Friday, 7 June 2019. So, get the thinking caps on, the creativity stoked and the entries in by 7 May 2019! For more information go to Cicada Film Festival website.
Bayside Branch hosts monthly meetings with expert guest presenters, conducts a variety of workshops throughout the year and arranges family outings such as spotlighting, bushwalks, birdwatching and an annual cruise in Moreton Bay. All these activities aim to be both fun and educational. Members also participate in bushcare groups.
Our monthly newsletter Wildlife Diary and bi-monthly Koala News keep members and friends up to date with our activities and provide informative articles on different aspects of wildlife and habitat. Bayside Branch promotes community-based fauna & flora surveys, including curlew and dugong surveys and Seagrass Watch, a long-term monitoring program to map and monitor seagrass habitats. Seagrass Watch attracts a lot of interest from both the local community and government agencies and is proving very successful.
