Applications to attend the 6th National Malleefowl Forum to be held in Mildura from the 17th to 20th August 2018 are open until August 6.
The National Malleefowl Forum is for anyone with an interest in conserving Malleefowl, and provides an opportunity for community groups, conservation agencies, research institutions, industry and interested individuals to hear the latest updates on research, technologies and conservation activities, as well as discuss strategies and actions to further progress the cause of Malleefowl conservation.
The Malleefowl is listed nationally as vulnerable and is one of only three Australian species of mound builders. The impacts of fire, land clearing and predation by foxes has led to the decline in Malleefowl numbers throughout Australia.
The Forum provides inspiration to look at and tackle new ways to help this species, and provide an avenue to meet new people and catch up with others, who have a shared interest in this special bird.
Previous national forums have been held in Adelaide, SA (1995), Mildura, Vic (2004), Katanning, WA (2007), Renmark, SA (2011), and now Dubbo, NSW (2014), with continued and in many areas growing support for the Malleefowl shown across the breadth of its range.
The Program for the 2018 is now available. The weekend has a stellar line up of speakers and activities for attendees.
Registration for the weekend is open until August 6 and is available at http://www.nationalmalleefowl.com.au/forums/national-malleefowl-forum-2018.html
