Feeding wild birds: What does science tell us?
Wildlife Queensland Brisbane Branch presents this free presentation by Darryl Jones, Professor of Ecology at Griffith University. Feeding wild birds is extremely popular throughout the developed world but is also highly controversial in Australia. Having studied urban wildlife for over 30 years, Professor Jones believes it is time to discuss the many issues surrounding this practice, what we know, what is wrong and why it really matters. This has lead to the recent publication of his book ‘The Birds At My Table’ which will be available at the talk for $25.
