Protecting the migratory birdlife in the Port Hacking

Here is an important (to you) letter from our Office of Conservation.

Port Hacking tidal flats are home to critically endangered eastern curlews. Their numbers have crashed by around 80% in just 3 decades and if we don’t help them now could be extinct in a generation. 

Please ask the Royal National Park to incorporate the feeding flats at Deeban Spit, Maianbar, Port Hacking into the Royal National Park. Migratory shorebirds are one of the most endangered bird species groups in the world. The area in Port Hacking they use is totally unprotected and could see them become locally extinct if the Royal does not take them on as part of their stewardship. 

The draft plan of management is available here where you will also find the address to which you can send your comments

This is a good video clip to share:

 Stepwise instructions to readers:

  1. read this letter
  2. write one of your own to National Parks and Wildlife
  3. send it (addresses here)
  4.  get a friend to start at step 1.
  5. rest a little while and dragoon another friend.

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.
