My Story

Canberra the Bush-Capital is well deserving of its title. Most of the heart of the nation, including parliament hill, lies within the boundaries of a globally recognized Key Biodiversity Area (KBA).

Now Canberra is getting one of the most distinctive sounds of the bush back, the wailing calls of the Bush Stone-curlew filling the night. Bush Stone-curlews became extinct in the ACT around 1970. Its reintroduction was started through a community driven project of several releases of birds over 2014 to 2016 establishing a small breeding population within the Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary. Re-introductions of these birds have been trialled elsewhere but have largely failed, for reasons poorly understood.

Twitchathon funds will build upon this previous work and will help with:

Further releases of Bush Stone Curlews

  • Analysis of the core mechanisms behind success and failure of introduction

  • Development of frameworks for reintroductions of other ground-dwelling birds

  • Development of a method for long-term GPS tracking of Bush Stone-curlews

Thank You
