Australasia's home for timber news and information

Bird watchers wanted at Kangaroo Island

One-third of the Kangaroo Island Plantation Timbers properties are native vegetation, and half of that is considered High Conservation Value. As part of its responsible environmental management plan, KIPT is working with Birdlife Australia to conduct surveys in its plantation properties. Source: Timberbiz

KIPT needs volunteers to work in pairs or trios to survey transects in each property. The company said that it was particularly keen on having volunteers who can identify the birds they see, although a “cheat sheet” will be provided.

Volunteers will be given fuel vouchers to assist with the costs of participating and will receive instructions from Birdlife Australia on how to do the work.

An information meeting will be held on Saturday, 6 October at 10am at the Kangaroo Island Yacht Club.

The surveys will be conducted on the weekend of November 3 and 4.
