Declining Birds: Regional List(s)

     Hello everyone
     I agree that a national listing of birds in decline somewhere in 
     Australia would be a long list indeed, and probably not much use.
     Perhaps some thought could be given to a regionally oriented set of 
     lists to be coordinated and stored in an accessible place (RAOU Web 
     pages for example), but with the responsibility for contributions 
     resting squarely with regional groups such as COG, FOC, BOCA etc, who 
     could provide up to date information on declining species in their own 
     region(s) of interest.
     I am not sure who would use the lists, but I have the feeling that 
     they would provide useful information in discussions on regional and 
     national conservation issues, particularly declining woodland and the 
     removal of firewood.
