Birdlife Tasmania Brochure Launch

Kingborough has a new tool to help you find local bird species, thanks to BirdLife Tasmania and the support from Kingborough Council Community Grants program.

Kingborough Mayor, Paula Wriedt said the Bird Walks brochure would provide information for residents, community groups, schools and visitors about the best locations to experience Kingborough’s birdlife.

“This is a great resource to help people get out and enjoy our natural areas and connect with the biodiversity of Kingborough,” Cr Wriedt said.

The Convenor of BirdLife Tasmania, Dr Eric Woehler said the brochure provided details on the remarkable endemic bird species found nowhere else on Planet Earth, though easily found on these walks.

“The brochure details habitats, access and the birds likely to be seen on 10 easy walks in the Kingborough municipality, including Bruny Island,” Dr Woehler said.

“It is hoped that this brochure is the first of more, where BirdLife Tasmania collaborates with Councils elsewhere in Tasmania to produce a series for around the state.”

The brochure will be stocked at Kingborough Council, Civic Centre, Libraries and at BirdLife Tasmanian events.
