The Sesbania field day was a great success. We celebrated 3 years of incredible advances in our fight to eradicate Prickly Acacia, including an 8-fold efficiency increase, 10-fold cost reduction, 99.96% kill rate, 8-fold grass cover increase, and a 15-fold grass biomass increase.
Our rare, elusive Night Parrot is under enormous threat from the most ruthless and efficient hunter this continent has ever seen. Researchers estimate there are 15 million feral cats in Australia, each eating up of 23 native creatures (including insects) per night. If we dial those numbers back to 10 million cats and 10 creatures per night we still get 100,000,000 victims per night, or 36.5 billion per year. We cannot afford to allow our amazing Night Parrots to become part of those statistics. That’s why we’re fundraising for humane cat traps to be located around the only known Night Parrot population, smack bang in the middle of our region. We’re working with Bush Heritage Australia to ensure the survival of this wonderful bird. Please help by donating here.
