Although listed as a priority species, Quendas are doing well in some bushland areas. You can read…

City West Lotteries House, 2 Delhi Street

Why indiscriminate burning will permanently alter our bushlands and why we need to rethink how we use fire in our landscapes. Our biodiversity is going up in smoke, harming our health, the plants and animals that make Perth and the South-west of Western Australia a world biodiversity hot spot. After making headway in the 1990's with collaboration of DFES, DBCA, bushcare groups, community and local governments we have returned to hierarchical decisions. Our scientists are showing us the compelling evidence! Come…

Have you seen these in your bushland? Insects and other macrofauna will help you with your bush regeneration work because they are composters, pollinators, predators! World insect populations are in decline for all sorts of anthropogenic reasons. So, it is time for the few eco-literate members of our society to again stand up to eco-illiterate governments and their bureaucracies in their war of ignorance against the major proportion of our terrestrial macrofauna – the insects! Come listen to David Knowles…
