BirdLife Western Australia secured significant grants and achieved important milestones

BirdLife Western Australia’s proudest achievements for 2016 include securing significant grants and achieving important milestones in two of our projects.  We secured a large capacity-building grant from the State NRM for $424,000 which will run until December 2018.  We were also shortlisted to the final five for a $100,000 grant from Impact 100 WA and although we didn’t win on the night, as a runner up BirdLife WA received $10,000 and had the opportunity to showcase our work before some of Western Australia’s most influential people.  2016 saw the release of the Great Western Woodlands report and we held our largest Great Cocky Count ever, with a mega roost of nearly 5,000 birds located.
