Wild about Moreton Bay’s wildlife

Roll up your khaki sleeves and learn ways to help protect endangered species like the brush-tailed phascogale through a series of wildlife workshops across Moreton Bay this year.

Spokesperson for Lifestyle and Amenity Denise Sims said Moreton Bay was home to an abundant array of birdlife, the secret is to know where to look.

 “These workshops are designed to educate the public about animals living in their suburb and encourage them to be involved in protecting those species, Cr Sims said.

“Participants will learn how to identify an animal and why the species is important to their specific location, among other fascinating and interesting insights.

“We are very fortunate to have such large tracts of national park, wildlife and waterways so close to our homes. 

 “The beauty about that is there are some really unique fauna that many residents don’t know exist.

“We have the Eastern Yellow Robin in Redcliffe, the Glossy Black-Cockatoo that visits the Petrie area as well as the rare water mouse that lives in saltmarsh areas around Bribie Island.

“Each workshop will include a presentation by a guest speaker on the specific animal as well as guided walk.”

 The next workshop will be at The Hills Community Function Centre at James Drysdale Reserve off Pine Hills Drive, Bunya on Saturday 16 March between 9am and 11.30am. Bookings are essential and workshops are for people aged 16 years and over.
