Australasian Seabird Group
The Australasian Seabird Group, the oldest of BirdLife Australia's Special Interest Groups, was formed in 1971. Our objectives are to promote seabird research and conservation in Australasia. We pursue these through a range of activities, including publication of a bulletin and other seabird material, organisation of symposia of issues affecting seabirds, provision of expert opinion on the management and conservation of seabird populations in Australasia, and the coordination of projects including surveys of seabird islands and beach patrol projects.

It encompasses the extensive waterways of the Gippsland Lakes, 90 Mile Beach, the iconic Snowy River region, extensive old-growth forests, alpine meadows and the last free-flowing wild rivers of southeast Australia.

Our membership catchment area is residents who live in the post code range 2570-2580 and our ever-increasing membership now stands at almost 70. Members currently live right across the NSW Southern Highlands at places such as Camden, Picton, Tahmoor, Buxton, Hill Top, Mittagong, Bowral, Moss Vale, Berrima, Exeter, Robertson, Bundanoon, Wingello and Goulburn.
BirdLife Southern NSW
BirdLife Southern NSW covers NSW and the ACT south of a rough line from Port Macquarie on the east coast to Tamworth, down to Dubbo, through Nyngan, Cobar and Wilcannia before ending at Broken Hill on the western border, excluding those centres in the post code range of 2570 to 2580 which fall within the catchment area of BirdLife Southern Highlands. This large region contains diverse ecological habitats, from temperate rainforests on the east coast and Dividing Range, through drier eucalypt woodlands to the semi-arid rangelands in the west. BirdLife Southern NSW is also home to the Discovery Bird Centre.
