Topic – Bush Stone-Curlew Project

Why was the “Bush Stone- curlew Project” started? As wildlife rescuers you probably have not come accross these birds, as they are endangered in this region. The aim of this project is to increase the number of curlews in the landscape by a captive breeding program, as well as habitat enhancement in the surrounding forest. Jenny Steele, as a carer of seven curlews, will talk about the history of the project, the day to day care of the birds and what has been achieved so far.
