Did you know that it is estimated that around 400 species of Australian Native Fauna use tree hollows?
It takes more than 100 years for eucalyptus trees to develop tree hollows suitable for occupancy by vertebrates!
Natural Tree hollows are declining because of urbanization and tree clearing. You can supply a hollow home for wildlife by installing a nesting box. (Information from Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland)
The event has some great attendees this year with guest speakers including Nina Woods from the Condamine Alliance, Sea Shepherd's Bob Watson will outline their campaigns and Rod May will talk about the proposed detention dams in Garnet Lehmann Park and Ballin Drive Park. Nina will give an opportunity to discuss further at the Q&A session, as will Dianne Lukes from the Toowoomba Esperanto Society.
Stalls on the day include:
- Sea Shepherd Australia
- Friends of Toowoomba Escarpment Parks
- Return to the Wild Inc.Org
- Defenders of East Creek Park
- and many more
There will be live entertainment, performances and music throughout the day along with various food stalls.
