Cleland Wildlife Park and other protected reserves used to be all about protecting habitat for wildlife (and nature for our own needs). This is no longer enough and more than half the woodland birds of the Mount Lofty Ranges are in danger of being lost to us forever. We are to blame and it is clear how we got here. So how can people help these birds to survive? David’s idea might just be simple enough to work.
David Cleland Paton has devoted his life to science and educated many hundreds of South Australians who work in conservation. His passions are many, though it is the ecology and behaviour of birds that drives this Associate Professor of environmental science, a Director of BioR and chair of Birds SA, one of the state’s largest environmental NGOs.
