Birds on Farms

Birds on Farms assists rural landholders to identify, appreciate and manage birds and their habitats on their properties.

Farms and rural properties cover large parts of the Australian landscape. Managing this land in a way that benefits birds and their habitats can also see benefits to farm productivity, through helping combat issues that flow on from climate change, historic habitat loss and fragmentation, feral animals and drought.
