Once again we finished the year with a great weekend in the Bunya Mountains completing surveys for the Key Biodiversity Area programme.

Bunya Mountains

The Bunya Mountains is 371 km2 of rainforest, eucalypt forests and woodlands, located less than 200km from the eastern coast. At an average height of 975m the forests are cool and verdant and support a huge amount of flora and fauna.

The Bunya Mountains are also one of the world’s Key Biodiversity Areas and we conducted surveys over two days as part of Birdlife’s KBA programme. It was great to contribute to this international programme, and a wonderful way to end the year for our group.
