BirdLife Southern Queensland specialises in bird surveys, with emphasis on threatened species and habitats, especially in a number of Important Bird Areas. We are taking an increased interest in local conservation issues where birds are affected. There are five Local Branches and a photography group. They have a rich program of birdwatching, photography and surveying activities in designated local areas
We extend some 400 km down the east coast of southern Queensland from Maryborough to the NSW border and west 1700 km to the NT border past Birdsville.
This is a diverse area from the white dunes of the World Heritage Fraser Island to the red dunes of the Simpson Desert National Park. In between are beaches, mountains and plains containing wetlands, heaths, rainforests, mulga and brigalow scrubs, grasslands, eucalypt forests and woodlands.
