Endangered Emus

The Endangered Coastal Emu population of the Clarence Valley is in serious trouble. In just a few short years the population has retracted and split into distinct isolated sub-populations – a classic precursor for extinction. They no longer exist at Red Rock or Iluka.

NPWS Ranger Gina Hart and a small number of community members have been working tirelessly trying to save this population from extinction. You can help out by:

  • Drive slowly in known emu areas (eg. along Minnie Water Road, Brooms Head Road)
  • Control domestic dogs in coastal communities
  • Participate in the annual emu survey (express your interest by emailing emus@cvcia.org.au )
  • Reporting any emu sightings (live or dead) to Gina Hart on 6641 1500, by email emus@cvcia.org.au (which sends an email directly to Gina and the CVCIA) or by filling in the simple form below.

Thank you. The emus (and Gina!) need your help!
