"Perhaps Mr. Sullivan would be willing to introduce us to the political 
advocacy his organisation is working on, and why he thinks it is an effective 
effort.  I'd like to hear that answer."

OK, I've taken the bait again ...

Firstly, BirdLife Australia does not do “political" advocacy. BirdLife's small 
and effective professional advocacy team - all funded by donations, by the way 
- work closely with our branches and groups as a voice for birds nationally and 
locally. And we always use science to present our case, which in my experience 
gives us a terrific, fair hearing from politicians.

Our team of staff and volunteers punch well above our weight. Our influence is 
well documented on the website, magazine and newsletters. A few examples 
include the establishment of a bird sanctuary in Adelaide, changes to 
Victoria's terrible burn policy, a threatened species strategy and stopping 
developments of many important wetlands and breeding sites all over Australia. 
As a founding member of the Places You Love Alliance, BirdLife Australia is 
working with other environmental NGOs to co-design next generation national 
environmental laws with the community and business.

Our current campaign opposes further clearing of Carnaby’s habitat in the 
Perth-Peel region - you can help by signing the petition:

BirdLife is also opposing proposed industrial scale harvesting of beach wrack 
on SA's Limestone Coast, which will impact migratory and beach-nesting 

Thanks for all the wonderful positive feedback and, of course, we can always 
learn and improve. For the record, the RSPB's CEO Mike Clarke and his team have 
been very generous in sharing their time and expertise with our staff.

Finally, remember to order a BirdLife calendar for your family and friends 
before Christmas!
