Coastal emu community information session and barbeque
Coastal emus (Dromaius novaehollandiae) are listed as endangered under the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, with fewer than 50 individuals known to remain on the east coast. We need your help to protect these birds and their habitat.
Clarence Valley Council and Office of Environment and Heritage are working in partnership with local landholders; North Coast Local Land Services; National Parks and Wildlife Service; and Gulmarrad Public School to host a coastal emu community information session. The information session will take place at Gulmarrad Public School on Monday the 17th December 2018 from 2.30 PM.
The information session includes presentations regarding the threats to the coastal emu and management actions being taken by local organisations and community members. Come and learn how to participate as a citizen scientist and do your part to protect this iconic population.
For more information regarding the information session or Coastal Emu Register, please contact Caragh Heenan (Project Officer NRM) from the Clarence Valley Council Natural Resource Management team via Caragh.Heenan@clarence.nsw.gov.au or (02) 6641 7357.
