BIODIVERSITY — the conservation catchcry of the 1990s, highlights the importance of life in a variety of forms, species and systems. The Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland (WPSQ) also embraces diversity, adapting a variety of issues and geographical locations through its branch structure.
Operating autonomously and cooperatively, branches develop their own characteristics as activity centres for wildlife advocacy. Because they deal with local issues and maintain local communication networks, statewide branches are all eager for new members.
They are involved in everything from lobbying local and state governments, through to helping preserve habitats for koalas, mahogany gliders and dugongs.
Meetings are generally held once a month and there are regular field trips, workshops and other events. There are currently branches across Queensland, each with a different focus. Branch secretaries always welcome enquiries from prospective members and can provide more detailed information.
