Based in the heart of the Wet Tropics – a birdwatching wonderland – BirdLife Townsville holds many different birdwatching and conservation-based activities, including regular meetings, conservation surveys and monthly outings, to name just a few (see below).
Working closely with all levels of government and other conservation groups, we are actively involved in local conservation matters, providing input and support to bird habitat protection projects in the region, including the protection of migratory shorebird roost sites and Black-throated Finch habitat.
We also regularly present classroom sessions and conducts field days for students and teachers to advance the appreciation and protection of Australia’s birds and their habitats.
BirdLife Townsville holds regular meetings on the second Saturday of each month, with each featuring an interesting guest speaker. These meetings are held at held in the TCC Bicentennial Building (Sound Shell), Kirwan.
We also conduct outings to one of the many interesting locations in the region in most months. In addition, we hold campouts on all long weekends throughout the year.
