Are you interested in Brolgas - those big, beautiful birds seen around the district? Rutherglen Landcare invites you to a free community information evening on the Brolga with Matt Herring.
An evening on Brolga's with Matthew Herring, the author of 'Brolga Breeding Habitat, managing wetlands on your farm'.
Wetlands are hotspots for biodiversity.They can support an incredibly diverse concentration of life. A myriad of native birds, mammals, reptiles, frogs, fish, invertebrates and plants depend on them for at least part of their lifecycle, and ultimately their survival. The much-loved Brolgais one of those species.
The Brolga is a large, charismatic wetland bird of northern and eastern Australia, as well as small parts of Papua New Guinea. Adults can stand up to 1.4 metres and have a wingspan of over 2.5 metres. Breeding pairs are thought to partner for life and it is likely that Brolgas can live for over 50 years in the wild.
This is a great opportunity to get an understanding of the life cycle of the Brolga and how we as a community can assist them to survive in our environment.
