Hello members and supporters who live in East Gippy

The below owl presentation by Rohan should be very interesting. Our sister group from Bairnsdale is hosting this night. As the blurb says, owls are hard to study and little is known about them. So their protection, is still mostly guess work (convenient when logging is considered far more important). Rohan has some fascinating new info after his 5 years of owl prowling. EEG members would be most welcome to attend.



Home Range, Habitat Usage and Conservation of Large Forest Owls in East Gippsland

By Rohan Bilney
Monday October 6th at 7:30pm

DSE Offices 574 Main St Bairnsdale

Large Forest Owls in Australia are nocturnal, wide ranging, naturally uncommon and elusive, consequently little is known about their ecology.

This is of considerable concern, because it is essential to understand how Large Forest Owls utilize resources in order to develop appropriate conservation strategies. Large Forest Owls therefore present a challenge to land managers to appropriately conserve these species whilst mitigating land management practices, which are potentially threatening processes.

For five years Rohan Bilney, PhD student in Life & Environmental Sciences at Deakin University, has been conducting ecological research on Sooty Owls, Masked owls and Powerful Owls in East Gippsland.

Rohan will be presenting key aspects of his research on Monday October 6th at 7:30 pm, at Room 1, DSE offices 574 Main St Bairnsdale.
