The black-breasted button quail is a small ground dwelling bird native to South East Queensland. Due to threats posed by feral animals, the destruction of its habitat and the introduction of invasive weeds it is now listed as vulnerable with as few as 5000 individuals left in the wild. One of the largest remaining populations occurs in the Great Sandy National Park region, just south of the beautiful Fraser Island.
Conservation Volunteers Australia will be working collaboratively with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services to improve over 50ha of coastal habitat to help protect this population. By joining our team of volunteers you will get hands on experience working with local rangers to conduct quail surveys, creating sand plots to monitor feral animal activity and removing weeds to improve habitat that is essential for feeding and refuge. Sign up now to save your spot, gain practical conservation experience and most importantly, have fun!
