BirdLife Australia - Act for Birds
Community Forum, Cairns
Date: Thursday 10 May
Time: 6pm for a 6:30 start (event runs until 8:30pm)
Venue: Cairns City Library, 151 Abbot Street, Cairns
Join BirdLife in Cairns this May to hear about how nature laws are failing our birds and what we can do to help them.
BirdLife Australia is calling for stronger nature laws that genuinely protect our wonderful birds and their precious habitats. Our Act for Birds campaign is live, our report just launched, and across the environmental movement as a whole we're starting to see the extinction crisis getting the national media attention it deserves.
But our real power to secure stronger nature laws – and better outcomes for birds - lies in the stories and voices of local bird-lovers from around the country. So BirdLife will be hosting 8 community forums across the country!
This series of community forums will bring together people who care about birds and nature to share knowledge and take action. Attendees will get the chance to improve their understanding of this national issue, why it’s important and how it relates to you. We'll talk through exactly how the current system of nature laws is fundamentally broken and offer practical ways to take action about the local issues that matter to you.
This will be a great opportunity for passionate nature lovers (like you!) to connect with one another, come up with ideas of your own, and take action together for the places and birds you love!
Tea, coffee and snacks provided.
