Living with wildlife – free public seminar

Native Urban wildlife

Cats and dogs living in harmony with kookaburras, blue tongue lizards and ringtail possums – it can happen.

Learn how at a free public seminar hosted by the Sunshine Coast Council and presented by the RSPCA.

The seminar will be held on Thursday, October 1 from 6pm at the Lake Kawana Community Centre.

Environment Portfolio Councillor Jenny McKay said the free seminar was aimed at local community members and pet owners who were keen to learn about and protect local native wildlife.

“This is a great opportunity for local cat and dog owners to learn how to keep their backyard safe, and be a responsible pet owner,” Cr McKay said.

“The RSPCA’s wildlife veterinary team will offer tips and lessons on how to reduce your impact on and live in harmony with our native urban wildlife.

“Participants will have the chance to have all of their wildlife questions answered.”

Each year more than 15,000 wild native animals are presented to the RSPCA Qld Wildlife Hospital, and that number is growing.

Interested participants can book online at the Council’s Community Hub Website or call 5413 1400.

The Lake Kawana Community Centre is located at 114 Sportsmans Parade, Bokarina. Parking is available at the venue.
