Push to protect malleefowl continues

Property owners are invited to join the fight to protect a unique and threatened bird that makes its home in Dubbo's backyard.

The malleefowl is present in the Goonoo National Park and other areas of NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia, but its habitat was once much larger.

A recovery team has invited property owners to come along to a gathering of experts, researchers and enthusiasts from across the country at Dubbo to focus on strengthening the numbers of the bird listed as endangered in NSW.

The fifth National Malleefowl Forum will be held at Taronga Western Plains Zoo in September and facilitator Melanie Bannerman said registrations were now open.
