BirdLife Mildura are award winners

In partnership with Mildura west primary BirdLife Mildura won the Keep Australia Beautiful Active Schools Award in 2016 for an app built on the birds and plants of Lake Ranfurly by our Conservation Officer Amanda Blakely. A big event on the Mildura calendar was the Threatened Mallee Bird event organised in May with BirdLife Australia's Threatened Bird Network. The event included delivering the Threatened Mallee Birds Education Kit and introducing BirdLife Mildura as a support to teachers on the field component of the kit. BirdLife Mildura has a school kit of 15 pairs of child size binoculars, and a telescope for these events.
