June 10: Current Status of Eastern Ground Parrot on the Sunshine Coast, Kieran Aland
10 June 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5
The Eastern Ground Parrot once inhabited heath communities over a broad geographical range. It has been in decline for many decades and remaining mainland populations are fragmented. South-eastern Queensland is now regarded as one of the remaining strongholds for the mainland subspecies. On June 10th, at the Friday Environment Forum, Kieran Aland will provide a summary of the current status in southern Queensland, drawing on a number of sources. Various potential threats to the birds and their habitat will also be discussed. Kieran is a field ecologist who assists and informs various land management projects on the Sunshine Coast. He has been involved in Ground Parrot monitoring for the last four years. Although these birds are hard to see, they are easy to hear. The application of acoustic monitoring techniques will also be presented.
Join us at the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, at 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on June 10th to learn about this vulnerable parrot. The forum starts at 10:30am and morning tea is available from 10am-10.25am. Entry is $5 by ‘tap & go’ at the door. We no longer require pre-registration and everyone is welcome. We do ask that masks are worn to protect the vulnerable in our audience.
Join the bird observers at 8.30am in the carpark for interpretive birding.
