Wildlife Forum: Great Success with the WildThings NSW Pygmy Possum Project-Your opportunity to make a difference
The Forum entitled ‘Great Success with the WildThings NSW Pygmy Possum Project’ will have four excellent speakers showcasing this project's success. These include Bob Jones, Co-ordinator of the WildThings NSW Pygmy Possum Project and project volunteers, Simon Van Der Veen, Chris Hayward and Inge Buchanan.
The project now has over 160 participants on Facebook with many of these people active in the field.
Background on the project will also be given as well as the excellent progress which has been made including greater number of sightings on more habitat plants and in nest boxes .Co-operation with other organisations such as WIRES and Northern Beaches Pygmy Possums project will also be highlighted.
The presentations will showcase live footage of the activities of Pygmy Possums and other wildlife across the wide range of habitat areas now identified in Ku-ring-gai as well as the conservation measures essential for their survival.
Besides hearing about this fascinating project, you will also be given the opportunity to join on Facebook or even be a field volunteer if you wish.
Time is allocated for questions to, and discussion with, the speakers.
Light refreshments will be available from 12:30 - 13:15.
