BIEPA lodged, on 2nd September 2016, a Submission to the Queensland Government’s Advancing Climate Action in Queensland: Making the transition to a low carbon future discussion paper.
BIEPA was recently contacted by the government and asked if we would agree to having our Submission being made publically available on the Queensland government website.
The Four documents involved are available here in .pdf format, to read/download/print.
Guest Speaker: Linda Cross, Queensland Wader Study Group, Birds Queensland.
We all know there are many different bird species on Bribie Island (thanks to BIEPA’s publications, Bribie Birds” and the “Annotated Checklist”)
- Have you ever wondered just how many bird species have been identified to date?
- Have you ever wondered where are the best places to sight the different species?
- And, have you ever wondered why there are so many species? What is so special about Bribie Island?
- And, have you wondered who counts them all and maintains the tally?
Well, wonder no more. Linda Cross is going to join us to answer all our questions. Linda will show us some of the species that have been seen on Bribie – both common and uncommon. She will attempt to answer all your questions. Linda will share with us the techniques that Birds Queensland uses to document its bird counts.
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!
This is wonderful news!

So many individuals and groups have shown that it is combined pressure and lobbying on our decision makers that gets responsible policies accomplished.
