Big turn-out for Bushlinks talk

Seventy people attended the "Connecting our Bush" presentation in Maleny on 14 March.

Professor Henry Nix provided some interesting examples of migratory birds such as Yellow-faced Honeyeaters  that are seriously dependent on bush connectivity from Victoria to Queensland. These birds breed in the south in summer and travel to southern Queensland for the winter because food is more abundant there in the colder months.

Susie Duncan spoke about how we can create these bush connections in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland so that species can move between key habitat areas such as the Conondale and Blackall ranges.

The audience was enthusiastic about connectvity, discussing their observations of migrating wildlife and their efforts to restore and connect bush on their own properties.
