Wyndham Locals help the Gouldians

Recently Mike Fidler appealed to Wyndham locals in The Bastion newspaper to help reverse declining numbers of Gouldian finches in the area by putting up nest boxes in their gardens. The article is reproduced here.

Since then, a meeting has been held at the Research Centre. Fifteen nest boxes were taken by Wyndham residents directly after the meeting and at least another fifteen have been spoken for since. Well done, Wyndham!

Also thanks are due to the prison work camp inmates, who are repairing some of the part-made boxes.
