Welcome to Wildlife Queensland Townsville Branch

NB EASING OF COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS

From 21st June 2020 we have resumed our monthly field trips. Depending on Covid-19 restrictions, we may ask you to “book” your place so that we do not exceed permitted numbers. In this situation financial members will be given preference but any spare places will be offered to others. Please do NOT attend if you feel at all unwell or have any flu, fever or cold-like symptoms!

ABOUT THE TOWNSVILLE BRANCH

Established in 1968 the Townsville Branch is part of a state-wide organisation. The Branch has a long history of caring for our local environment and encouraging the community to understand and appreciate the wildlife and natural places that exist around our city and region. We have a special interest in the health and management of nearby national and environmental parks and in encouraging science-based and humane management and protection of wildlife in urban settings.

The Branch advocates strongly for the protection of coastal woodlands and rainforest, and for sound coastal, reef and land management. It is an advocate for the conservation of threatened species and recently completed a two-year monitoring survey of the endangered mahogany glider.

The Branch runs a program of field trips, open to interested members of the public, in order to enjoy and learn about our natural environment. 

 Please contact us for further enquiries or information about any of the above.
