Across Australia there are many people and organisations undertaking a wide variety of activities to save Malleefowl. A lot of these activities are undertaken by volunteers and there is little opportunity for them to share knowledge and thus learn of improved ways of doing things. The Forum will benefit Malleefowl across Australia, by providing an opportunity to share experiences and collectively improve management for Malleefowl.

The Forum will cover subjects including latest technology, interaction with industry (including mining companies), managing populations and updates on monitoring and the Adaptive Management Project.

Past Forums have been held in Adelaide (1995), Mildura (2004), Katanning WA (2007) and Renmark (2011). This time it is NSWs turn and the forum is planned for the convention centre at the Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo.

The Forum is still some time away and details are still being organised. In the mean time, all Malleefowl lovers are advised to put aside the weekend of 12-15 September 2014.
