 inkweed

  Inkweed: This is a recent incursion on King Island that we are currently aiming to eradicate.
  The map on the flyer shows the area we know it to be. Is it in your back yard?

 

 

boneseed flower 

Boneseed: A Weed of National Significance that is known to be in backyards and properties invading across Currie. 
If you have this one, now you might have time remove it!

 

Both of these can be pulled out or first loosened with a fork then pulled out. Extensive infestations can be sprayed.
If a boneseed is a full grown shrub it may need cutting down.

 

Monthly Meetings- meetings are held the second Monday of each month, 5.30 pm. All welcome.
Usually held at KIRDO 5 George St, Currie meetings can also be joined by video-conferencing.
For information on how to join the video-conference please call Michelle or Lee on 6462 1778.

 

COUNTING OUR BIRDS,  a Wings on King project running since 2015, we are still interested to hear of your sightings. The King Island Green Rosella and the King Island Black Currawong may be becoming extinct. They are both subspecies of Tasmanian native species that live only on King Island. They exist nowhere else in the world.

Counting birds on Your Place – Garden, Orchard or Farmland, but these focus areas aren’t the only areas that are important. The more people we have counting across the island the better. So it would be great if YOU can help us by checking in your own gardens, orchards or properties. The best time to check is in the morning, but anytime will do. Then send the KINRMG the results.

WHAT: we NEED to KNOW:

  • How many Currawongs and/or Green Rosellas are there at one time
  • When you saw them – Day and time
  • Where you saw them: GPS co-ordinates (Most smart phones have a GPS built into them) or the address with the nearest cross road.
