Capricorn Yellow Chat - We are proud of what we have achieved so far
Both Rubber Vine and Harrisia Cactus have infested Capricorn Yellow Chat habitat in the Twelve Mile Creek area south of Rockhampton. BirdLife Capricornia has been working hard to obtain funding to combat these threats, having success through the Fitzroy Basin Association and donations from members. However, the $10,000 raised does not go a long way when it costs $1400 a day for a weed contractor. Queensland branches agreed that half of the money raised from the 2016 Twitchathon would go towards Capricorn Yellow Chat conservation work and half towards the Eungella Honeyeater. The total funds raised were $4555. We are proud of what we have achieved so far.
