July 14: Saving Point Cartwright – Quentin Brown
14 July 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$5
Point Cartwright Reserve is an iconic landmark that also has some truly unique ecological and cultural heritage qualities that make it a rarity on the Sunshine Coast. These include: terrestrial biota that supports critically endangered littoral rainforest; rocky shores that host resident and migratory shorebirds and many seabirds; riverine habitats that contain globally significant diversity of nudibranchs; beaches that nurture the highest number of endangered loggerhead turtle hatchings on the Sunshine Coast; and cliffs that reveal Jurassic Period fossilised landscapes.
All of these natural qualities are tied to a profound Indigenous cultural heritage and a fascinating European history.
The presentation by Quentin Brown at Friday Environment Forum on July 14 takes you on a tour of these attributes and explains the Point Cartwright Care Group’s advocacy for a conservation park. With the release of Council’s new Draft Master Plan for Point Cartwright this presentation examines what is needed to reverse ongoing decline in these unique natural and human values.
Everyone is welcome at the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on July 14. The forum starts at 10:30am and morning tea is available at 10-10.25am. Entry is $5 by “tap & go” at the door which includes morning tea/coffee.
Join the bird observers at 8.30am in the carpark for interpretive birding.
