NB EASING OF COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
As of 21st June 2020 we have resumed our monthly field trips. Since the easing of Covid 19 restrictions on numbers attending outdoor events you no longer need to ‘book’ your place on a trip. Should this change, we will advise you. In the meantime please do NOT attend if you feel at all unwell or have any flu, fever or cold-like symptoms OR if you have recently returned from overseas or been in any declared Covid hot-spots! If in doubt, please contact the Secretary (see below.
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.
Remaining dates for 2020 field trips are: 25 October, 22 November. Our Annual General Meeting was held, with reduced attendance, on 29 March 2020.
