It equates to changing Stone Curlews to Thicknees. Couldn't they put
climate change in there too?

At the AGM of BOCA (Bird Observers Club of Australia) in May the
voted to change the name of the organisation to Bird Observation &
Conservation Australia and the necessary formalities have now been
to enable this change.
The new name of course retains our familiar acronym of BOCA and was
place to better reflect BOCA's dual purposes – that of a member based
organisation encouraging and facilitating bird watching and that of an
active environmental organisation with special interest in birds and
BOCA will continue to run extensive activities for its members, but we
be using the new name to change the way we present ourselves to the wider
community and to seek their support for our conservation and education
