Some important news for our woodland birds in Victoria.

The Victorian Minister for Environment and Conservation's Scientific Advisory
Committee has recommended that a nomination for:
                  Victorian temperate-woodland bird community

be listed as a threatened community under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act.
The recommendation has been advertised in todays Age and Weekly Times papers
inviting public comment, with submissions closing 1 December 2000.

As far as I'm aware this is the first time in Australia that an entire community
of birds has been recognised as threatened.  The community includes 24
woodland-dependent birds several of which have already been recommended for
listing as threatened in the state.  They are honeyeaters, parrots, robins and
other species.

Should list members be interested in obtaining a copy of the four page
recommendation report please contact me directly.  I encourage all interested
parties to make a submission.
