Excellent rave Michael and certainly lots of good ideas.

Shouldn't Birds Australia and BOCA take this on? They are the only two
national orgs with sufficient necessary resources to even look at it. BA
did exceptionally well with their national appeal for Gluepot funding
raising $300,000 in just a few months, and they are doing well with the
present atlas project. It will take an org. with that sort of status to
make it work. 

I agree, the whole thing needs a much higher public profile to get many
more people involved, and this may even help the pollies recognise the
need, sit up, and get behind conservation causes. 

Tony.  mxxp.
