Scenic Rim Wildlife (of which I’m chair) is holding a workshop on Saturday 2nd April at the Heritage Centre, Tamborine Mountain, to discuss the provision of wildlife corridors in the Scenic Rim (southeast Queensland)
I’ll be speaking briefly on why animals need to move (daily, seasonally, other) and pose some questions about the future of the Scenc Rim
Cathryn Dexter of Griffith University will then be giving us information on wildlife corridors and faunal overpasses in Europe and elsewhere as well as here in southeast Queensland, and Jaap Vogel will fill us in with some details of what has been happening in America.
Michael Anderson (Environmental Management, Scenic Rim Regional Council) will give us an update on what is happening in the Shire and what might be planned for the future, and Lauren Barnaby (Qld Water Infrastructure Pty. Ltd) will tell us about habitat restoration and faunal underpasses at Wyaralong Dam. We will also hear about the wildlife corridor at Cedar Creek Estate winery and neighbouring lands.
An open discussion will follow on what we need to know and to do to assist wildlife movements in the future, and we will be calling for volunteers to join in some fauna surveys over the coning months with a view to seeing where animals currently are, where ther continued existence could be in jeopardy, and p;aces where they are now absent but might be encouraged back if corridors of different kinds were established.
Free entry. Numbers will be limited by available seating, so bookings are essential – you can book by leaving a comment here
