The Compton Road wildlife overpass at Karawatha Forest in Brisbane is described as “ridiculously successful” by Griffith University’s Professor Darryl Jones. It’s being used as a guide by other countries. Australia still has only 5 fauna overpasses. Very few compared to France’s 380.
In case you're wondering about the weather & our workshop this Friday - we'll be inside! "Citizen Science in Your Garden" with @JessieLOliver will involve discussions & showcasing of projects etc. We might wander outside if it clears. Details & booking: eventbrite.com.au/e/citizen-s…
"Here in Australia, sadly, we have a terrible record of extinctions and habitat destruction. We're rich and smart, but we spend hardly anything on conservation." - @martine_maron from @UQ_CBCS tells #ESAus21
🌳 Tree hollows are a valuable and often essential resource for many Australian wildlife species. Over 300 native wildlife species rely on hollows - including 31% of native mammals and 15% of native birds.
