Recently I went into Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary to do my next interview on Eastern Bristlebirds.
These birds got their name from the small bristles on their cheeks. These guys are found in the bush of the hinterland on the Gold Coast, the Border of QLD and NSW as well as the border of NSW and Victoria.
Unfortunately this species is highly endangered. There are two subspecies, the northern and southern. The northern population only has 50 birds remaining! The southern population isn't going very well either but is better than the northern population. Their threats include feral animals, weeds, bushfire and habitat loss.
Check out my interview below with Kara on what the Sanctuary's doing to help save the species.

Today I attended the Discovery In The Gardens event at the Gold Coast Regional Botanic Gardens, put on by naturally GC. It was fantastic to see so many families getting engaged and learning about native gardening and wildlife. There were many great stalls there like the Australian Bat Clinic & Wildlife Trauma Centre, Natura Pacific, Friends of the Gold Coast Botanic Gardens and Geckoes Wildlife as well as countless plant stalls. There were also many great tours around the gardens. One of them was done by Sparky Do Dah. Sparky does programs and games for kids to get them reconnected with nature and I could tell they were loving it.
