New Website for ORAC

The website includes a comprehensive Index of Cases which includes all NSW reports that have been submitted to NSW ORAC and BARC both accepted and not accepted, and also includes known reports of rare species for which no submission was made. Most of these latter reports are shown at the end of the Index of Cases as not confirmed/not assessed but some have case numbers since, in the early days of NSW ORAC, case numbers were sometimes assigned when a sighting was claimed but which was not followed up with a submission. The Index of Cases can be searched by species names, dates, sites, etc and there is also a downloadable PDF version.

 

The latest revision of the NSW ORAC Review List is on the site as a PDF file and the URR Form is on the site as a downloadable Word document which can be used to prepare submissions to the committee.

Kakadu Bird Week 2020

26 September – 3 October 2020 — Kakadu National Park

Kakadu National Park is a bird lover’s paradise – home to more than a third of Australia’s bird species, Kakadu is the perfect place to discover and learn all about the unique species of birds living in this magical part of the world, which is dual World Heritage listed for both its natural and cultural values.

This year, Bird Week is a little different. You can join us ‘virtually’ or ‘on-park’ to experience the wonders of birdlife in Kakadu with Bininj/Mungguy, leading bird experts and research scientists.

Enjoy a host of exciting activities online, including birdwatching, wetlands cruises, Aboriginal cultural experiences and much more!

For those lucky enough to join us at Kakadu, come along on a birdwatching adventure to remember, and support the fantastic local businesses and tour operators here at the park.

Whether you’re a twitcher or you can’t tell the difference between a magpie goose and a pigeon, a local joining us at the park or tuning in from across the globe, there is something for everyone during Kakadu Bird Week.

During Bird Week, visitors and viewers are treated to specialist lectures, cultural events and some of Australia’s best birdwatching.
