#PeopleOfNRM – Alice Bishop

If you have been following NACC NRM for a while, you may have noticed a few incredible people who regularly volunteer their time to support our projects and events. One of whom is our January #PeopleOfNRM, Alice Bishop from Birdlife Midwest!

A longtime lover of wildlife and biodiversity, Alice has been putting her hand up to help our program teams for many years now. Whether it is assisting our Coastcare team in delivering community events or monitoring Carnaby’s Cockatoos with the Biodiversity crew.

Alice has been working in citizen science and community education with Birdlife Midwest since 2013 and says her drive comes from her love for diversity and sharing experiences with new people.

“The biodiversity in our region – marine, coastal, inland, flora and fauna – is what makes it such a special corner of the world,” said Alice.

However, Alice says there are significant issues that threaten local wildlife in our region, and the community are pushing for these issues to be addressed.

“The main concerns are feral cats, rubbish pollution, destruction of remnant bush, and vehicles compromising beaches, rivers, and dunes,” said Alice.

“The community wants education and action in order for wildlife to survive.”

When it comes to action, Alice’s vision for the future includes more people contributing to a thriving region, and improved care for our waterways.

“In the next 20 years, I’d like to see double the natural extent of natural healthy wetlands in the Midwest.”

Alice is certainly one of the most dedicated bird people I am aware of.
Her Midwest Bird group promote the migratory birds at many local festivals & events, so that our community get educated & hopefully think before they act in buying a lovely little kitten which in time causes massive impact on birds & fauna.

Great joy to see Birdlife Midwest organizer, Alice Bishop, out there influencing the public by spreading information about environmental issues and ways to help the often critically endangered birdlife in an effort to turn the tables and keep our unique biodiversity. Thank you, Alice.
