Bitterns on Farms Project

A partnership between Birdlife Australia and Heytesbury District Landcare Network


The Jean & Chester Porter Bitterns on Farm Project is an initiative seeking to improve conservation outcomes for one of our most threatened waterbirds with help from communities that manage, live and work in their wetland landscapes.

Heytesbury District Landcare Network is helping Chris Purnell at Birdlife Australia make contact with landholders in our area. We appreciate very much the assistance that local Landcare groups Elingamite Cobrico, Bostocks Creek and Princetown have given us so far.

Here’s the first newsletter from Birdlife Australia for your reading enjoyment.

We hope it will be the first of a few, as we help organise a couple of events and maybe down the track on-ground activities over 2023 and 2024. 


Enjoy some more photos from the project.
