Booderee recently celebrated a major milestone of our eastern bristlebird conservation program with the 500th survey in March!

The distribution of the endangered eastern bristlebird is highly fragmented in coastal NSW and southern Queensland and Booderee is a major stronghold for the remaining population.

We have been undertaking monitoring surveys of our bristlebirds since December 2003. Our results show that the bristlebird population has increased and that the park’s fire management and feral animal control programs are working well for the conservation of the birds in Booderee
