Australia’s mammal extinction crisis needs urgent attention. Foxes and cats have significantly contributed to the loss of some of our most vulnerable species. Alarmingly, the trend doesn’t look like slowing.
Many researchers agree that the dingo plays an important role in mitigating native mammal declines, because they suppress foxes and, in some cases, cats. So when we remove dingoes to benefit livestock, our native wildlife suffers.
It's not spring.. yet... but the Eastern Grass Owl can,t wait as they begin their search for a mate before heading off to nest and settle down with their new family.
The ground-nesting owls are listed as ‘vulnerable’ on the NSW Threatened Species list by the independent Scientific Committee.
Jill Smith, Conservation Officer at the Office of Environment and Heritage, said the ghostly night birds mainly inhabit open tussock grasslands, grassy heathland and agricultural crops such as sugar cane in the coastal plains of the NSW north coast with occasional records on the north-western slopes and south to Sydney and vagrant records farther south.
Ever considered giving your chooks a food supplement? I hadn’t.
A few weeks ago we told you about the winner of a ‘wildest chook’ competition… the winner was a feisty feathered female – who liked to pretend she was a rooster! Very funny.
The people running the comp, Sustenhance, make a product called ‘Perfect Poultry’ which they reckon helps all hens at all stages of life.
A pet chicken from Mackay QLD named ‘Whitey’ who roams freely and behaves like a rooster has taken out the top prize in Sustenhance’s Chicks Gone Wild competition.
During April, Australia’s leading supplier of nutritional supplements for animals, Sustenhance, called out to poultry owners across the country to share their most funny or bizarre chicken home videos, capturing wild behaviours.
It’s just past Valentines Day and while those who received flowers are trying to work out how to keep them alive as long as possible (hint: chop their stems and change water every two days) here’s a comforting thought for the rest of us (yep me too) who might be flower-less.
(Not complaining – I put in a request for one of those weird expanding garden hoses which is yet to arrive – but I’m happy!)
