ABOUT THE TOWNSVILLE BRANCH

Established in 1968 the Townsville Branch is part of the state-wide Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland (or Wildlife Queensland, for short!). The Branch has a long history of caring for our local environment and encouraging the community to understand, appreciate and protect 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 three-year monitoring survey of the endangered mahogany glider.

The Branch runs a program of weekend field trips (usually on a Sunday) in order to enjoy and learn about our natural environment. Unless otherwise indicated these are open to interested members of the public – see proposed dates below.

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