Return of the Birds
BirdLife Australia funded Kuranda EnviroCare Inc. with a grant via their trust fund Australian Bird Environment Foundation (ABEF) on a project to inform the public on bird re-colonisation into our present and historical restoration plantings. The funding included building web-pages and up-loading information to educate the public of our volunteer bird-monitoring results.
