Branching out with PF OLSON
BirdLife Hamilton and BirdLife Warrnambool attended a PF OLSON funded workshop in September on bird call ID and systematic surveying. PF Olson is a local based plantation management company keen to contribute to local jobs and community engagement. The workshop funding came through an ongoing partnership with BirdLife Australia to monitor Blue Gum plantations. Both branches also participated in the second annual survey on control and remnant vegetation sites in October. Their ongoing contribution and passion have been greatly appreciated, “having branches onboard provides local knowledge for the region that is invaluable in the success of the project” Dr Kerryn Herman, BirdLife Australia Ecologist.
