Living in the suburbs of Melbourne, it’s tempting to think of the environment as something that exists “out there”, beyond the city. So what can people living on a block of land in a typical housing subdivision do to improve the environment?

Project Stage - Current
Currently seeking volunteers and/or advice from experienced bird watchers. Field work will be undertaken in SE Queensland, predominantly in the Darling Downs and parts of the Brigalow Belt South Bioregion. Please get in touch with Jessica Miller (via the details on her UQ project page) if you'd like to know more.
