March 22: Photographing Critters for “The Nature of Noosa” and West Cooroy SF – Tony Wellington

22 March @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

At the next Friday Forum, Tony Wellington, former Noosa mayor, wildlife enthusiast and amazing photographer, will talk about the many creatures that call Noosa home. His focus will be on how he went about selecting material for his latest book, “The Nature of Noosa”, as well as the wildlife he documented in the West Cooroy State Forest.

Tony’s previous book “Wild about Noosa” has sold out and his new book “The Nature of Noosa” features beautiful photographs of the breeding, feeding and antics of different animals across Noosa’s diverse ecosystems. 

Tony has always been passionate about increasing the environmental protection of our forests and West Cooroy will be the final, large parcel of state forest in the Noosa Shire to be converted to conservation status. Although the state government announced a year ago that this 1150 hectare of diverse habitat would become national park, it now seems to be heading towards ‘conservation park’ status. Nevertheless, the addition will be a useful stepping stone in a corridor between the Yurol/Ringtail sections of Tewantin National Park and Mapleton Forest. 

Come along to this forum on March 22nd to learn more about the West Cooroy Forest conversion and be inspired by Tony, a passionate environmentalist, author and photographer. “The Nature of Noosa” will be available for $60 with payment via cash or card.

Everyone is welcome at the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville. 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.
