Australia's Small Birds

  • Emeritus Professor Harry Recher draws on four decades of bird research in Australia to ring the alarm bells on the decline of Australia's small birds. These are the bush birds of our forests, woodlands and suburbs, and he finds that perhaps half of their former populations and abundance have already been lost. He outlines what we can do to save the rest, and concludes that Australia's small birds are too beautiful, too precious, to lose.

Bio-banking Scheme

  • Landowners in NSW who are interested in protecting and conserving biodiversity values on their land may establish a biobank site and generate biodiversity credits. These can be generated by landowners who commit to enhance and protect biodiversity values on their land through a biobanking agreement. Credits may be sold to generate funds for the management of the site.
