Courting Brolgas

There is some thing special about brolgas, so a big thank you to Louise Thomas for taking the time to record this footage near Darlington

Recently the Moorabool Catchment Landcare Group ran a workshop on threatened fauna where Inka Veltheim spoke about her research into brolgas. She gave some useful tips for farmers who want to enhance the habitat for brolgas on their farms.

Avoid using ringlock fencing and barbed wire, mark the top line of wire and mark power lines near wetlands. Farm dams may be modified to incorporate more brolga habitat. Most important for brolga is to have a network of wetlands that cater for breeding and non breeding and the management of the wetlands.
