Fortunately, some of these animals are given a second chance through the remarkable work of wildlife rehabilitators. an amazing group of dedicated volunteers who take needy animals into their care. They arrange for veterinary treatment, and temporarily provide a protected environment until the animal recovers and can be released back into the wild. Rescued! opens a window on the fascinating world of wildlife rescue, and features dozens of wonderful true stories about the care and treatment given to owls, penguins, dolphins, koalas, flying foxes, platypus, kangaroos, eagles, turtles, echidna, and many other native animals in Australia and New Zealand. These stories show how physically, emotionally, and financially demanding being a wildlife carer really is. They will make you laugh, make you cry, break your heart, make you angry, and help you believe in miracles again. And they may even inspire you to become a wildlife carer yourself! This book enthralls readers with true stories of sick, injured and orphaned Australian native animals and the unsung heroes who are prepared to step in to help them in their time of need. These stories combine to not only demonstrate the magnificence of Australia's wildlife, but they carry a powerful message too - that every individual animal is unique and precious, and that saving one animal is the stepping stone to saving an entire species. l encourage every Australian to read this book. This book is rich with wisdom, inspiration and sound advice. lt is education with a smile and an invitation to open your heart to the unique animals all around us. It is a tribute to those brave and compassionate people all over this country who give their time, money and love so selflessly to help those creatures whose suffering would otherwise go unnoticed, and whose cause would go unchampioned.

Birds of Canberra Gardens, Brendan Smith
6 Brendan Smith Birds of Canberra Gardens
Australia Canberra Ornithologists Group and Urban Services, ACT Government 2000 0959954147 / 9780959954142 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good Folio Signed by Editor
112 indexed pages including colour illustrations, glossary and references. With over two hundred species that have been recorded, Canberra and its surrounding region has the richest bird life of any Australian capital city. From the largest bird, the Emu, to the smallest, the Weebill, the birds of Canberra present an ever-changing kaleidoscope of sizes, shapes, colours and sounds. This book is about the birds in and around Canberra gardens or in adjacent Canberra parks and open spaces. It describes the abundance and distribution of birds, and discusses how the birds are likely to be found at different times throughout the year, and in different places. The book also provides some ideas on how your garden may be made more attractive to native birds. The information in these pages is based on findings from the first seventeen years of the Garden Bird Survey (GBS) conducted by the Canberra Ornithologists Group. The survey began in 1981 and is still going. During this period many COG members and other interested people recorded the birds observed in their gardens and in the immediate vicinity. In that time they completed more than 1100 Garden Bird Charts amounting to more than 44,000 weeks of observations at 270 different sites. Dedicated amateurs who have different levels of observational skills have collected the data. Some observers put in more effort than others did. However, because this variability among observers is assumed to be uniform over the 17 years of the survey, we believe that valid comparisons between the years’ results can be made. This book is a good start to encourage interest in, and develop knowledge of, the birds of the Canberra region; to promote and co-ordinate the study of birds; and to promote the conservation of native birds and their habitat.

Vanishing Australians, Garvey, Keith
17 Garvey, Keith Vanishing Australians
Australia Macquarie Publications 1985 0949734101 / 9780949734105 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 4to 
64 pages. Keith Garvey would probably object if voucalled him a born conservationist, but in verses such as these, which carry a lament for our decreasing wild life, Garvey aids the conservationist cause and the protection of our natural heritage. "Vanishing Australians", while depicting appealing animals, has a strong message and is more polished. Kaye Partridge"s superb illustrations, both of common and more rare bush species (many on the endangered list), make the book a delight. An endangered species is an early warning sign of a deteriorating environment, according to the Total Environment Centre. A country which takes care of its endangered fauna accepts responsibility for the future of the environment. lt is this message that Garvey puts so succinctly in his collection of verses and images entitled "Vanishing Australians".
