Celebrate National Bird Week 2018
by taking part in the biggest citizen science project to hit Aussie shores.
From 22-28 October, thousands of people from across the country are heading out into their backyards, local parks or favourite open spaces to take part in the Aussie Backyard Bird Count.
We have received the final itinerary for the Sunshine Coast Spring Wildflower Festival 2018.
PLEASE GIVE NOW
The sad reality is most koalas don’t survive when their homes are torn down. While searching for a new home, they suffer from starvation, deadly infections and attacks from dogs and cattle.
A tax-deductible gift from you today would help our work with koala carers, by providing essential medical supplies to help rehabilitate koalas for a return to the wild.
Your donation will also help us plant trees to create homes and safe habitat corridors for threatened koala communities. Plus, it will support us to put the pressure on governments to stop excessive tree-clearing that destroys koala habitat, so we can protect wildlife for the long-term.
With less than 48 hours remaining in this financial year, now is the best time to make your tax-deductible donation.
Thank you for your support,
Some 70 participants joined BIEPA’s annual “Wonders of the Wallum” Wildflower Walk on Sunday 28 August, through bushland off Hornsby Road, Bellara. This event is part of the Wildflower Festival organised by the Sunshine Coast Council.
The weather was perfect, many of the flower species were at their best, and the groups of walkers appreciated the knowledge and experience of our Guides – Allan Carr from Native Plants Queensland and John Ward from the Bribie Wallum Action Group and Community Nursery.
Also present on the Walk was Michael Strong, Director of Turnstone Archaeology, who responded to questions about the Aboriginal history of the area. BIEPA would like to thank them all for their valued contribution to the success of this event.
We hope all participants had an enjoyable and interesting morning. We look forward to welcoming you again next year!
