Friday Environment Forum
Friday Environment Forum at the NPA Environment Centre
on March 10th, 2023
with David Gorman, Noosa Council
Queensland is the custodian of a globally and nationally significant proportion of Australia’s biodiversity. It is home to 50 per cent of the nation’s threatened species despite only representing 24 per cent of the landmass. As at 31 August 2020, there were 1000 threatened species listed under Queensland legislation including 230 animal and 770 plant species. Of these, more than 40 per cent of the fauna and more than 70 per cent of flora are endemic to the state.
Despite recovery efforts by state and local governments and many non-government organisations, the threat of extinction is still very real for threatened fauna in Queensland.
What about Noosa?
On Friday March 10, Noosa Council's Fauna Management Project Officer, David O'Gorman will outline Council's draft Threatened Fauna Recovery Road Map. The roadmap is intended to guide Council's approach to the ongoing management of regionally threatened fauna.
Nine fauna species have been selected by Council for prioritization and development of species recovery plans. See below.
Do not miss this opportunity to contribute to council’s plan. Join in a lively discussion on this important topic. Everyone is welcome at the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on March 10. 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.
