Wildlife Preservation Society of Queensland, Brisbane Branch

The Brisbane branch has been going strong since 1979 – advocating conservation through enjoyable education activities. Our city is growing, and some people are losing touch with nature. Our activities provide an opportunity to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of wildlife and habitat in the Brisbane area. Well-informed people are the key to finding future solutions for the issues that threaten our City.

Monthly environmental talks

  • On the fourth Tuesday of every month, except January and December, join us at 7.30pm at the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland, 237 Milton Rd, Milton (UBD 21 L1).
  • Learn from researchers and experts about all aspects of wildlife and the environment.
  • Recent talks have covered a variety of topics relating to Brisbane’s amazing wildlife – koalas, snakes, bats, corals, kangaroos, dung beetles and lungfish amongst others – as well as how to record their activities, how to preserve their habitats and how to deal with feral and invasive species.

Walks, camps and outings

  • We visit areas in the Brisbane region on a regular basis to learn about their natural or conservation values, led by guides with a wealth of environmental knowledge.
  • Past activities include camps on Moreton Island; walks at Downfall Creek, Toohey and Karawatha Forests, Tinchi Tamba Reserve; and canoe trips at Boondall wetlands.

Batty Boat Cruises

We have been running educational ecotourism Batty Boat Cruises since 1984, and they are still tremendously popular today. They take place during summer and cruise from East Brisbane to the Indooroopilly flying-fox roost to coincide with the sunset fly-out. We provide expert commentary through the various reaches of the Brisbane River and during the fly-out.

Non-members are welcome to attend meetings and activities to learn about Brisbane Branch, Wildlife Queensland and the benefits of being involved.

Contact us today to get involved with our branch and support Brisbane wildlife.
