The iconic Brolga once numbered in the thousands, inhabiting wetlands across much of Victoria. Now the species is under threat, with an estimated population size of only 600 to 650 birds, mostly confined to the southwest of the State.
Trust for Nature has assisted in the formation of a community-based Brolga Recovery Group, which will advocate on behalf of the Brolga and investigate ways to enhance Brolga-friendly habitat on private land. See the latest from the Group in the newsletters below.
