This World Wildlife Conservation Day, we invite you to join us in commemorating and remembering the nearly three billion animals killed or displaced during Australia’s devastating Black Summer bushfires.
The Queensland Government has just introduced legislation to ban plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery and plates/bowls in Queensland. Subject to consultation, it will include expanded polystyrene (foam) cups and clamshell containers.
Platypus habitat in Australia has shrunk by 22 per cent in 30 years and the animal should now be listed as a nationally threatened species, according to new research led by the University of New South Wales.
Wildlife Queensland’s Platypus Watch Network has been granted $26,930 from the state government to survey and document the population distribution of platypuses within the upper Dawson River and tributaries around the Taroom region.
Thank you to all members who attended the 2020 Wildlife Queensland Annual General Meeting, held on 26 September. Whilst this year’s COVID compliant event was limited to 30 attendees, we received a good representation from local branches.
