Brisbanes hummingbird house set to provide suite for end of life

The ornamental hummingbird house will be located at the end of the runway at the University of Western Sydney’s Charles R. Davis International Airport. It is expected to provide a home for thousands of the birds that have died out around the world during the past 20 years.

The ornamental house was designed by Professor David Dutton, of the University of Western Sydney’s Department of Ornithology.

„It’s really quite rare to have anything quite like this built in a part of the world which is so close to where the birds have died, and it will be really valuable to the public and other species and the species will be able to use the space,“ Professor Dutton said.

The structure is a combination of a large, rectangular pavilion and a large metal bench, designed to provide the necessary support and safety for the birds.

Professor Dutton said it had been difficult finding suitable birds to house the hummingbirds in the Western Australian desert.

„We had to develop and manufacture our own hatching-bird house, and it’s very expensive, as it is not a natural environment, but it was really fun to do,“ Professor Dutton said.

„It’s an extremely cool house.“

He hoped the building would provide more people from the western hemisphere to visit Australia to see the hummingbirds and experience these birds.

Professors Dutton and Daphne Kornley, the Chair of Ornithology at WSU’s department of biology, are in Perth for the opening of the university’s new campus in the eastern suburbs and will be presenting a public lecture about the project.

Nrn consumer animal welfare group (WCAW) in the aftermath of recent changes in Alberta’s animal protection legislation. The government’s plan to scrap several controversial animal welfare laws — such as banning pit bull terriers and allowing people to kill, dissect and sell puppies on the streets — had led WCAW to adopt a strategy of supporting animal welfare groups.

A month later, with news that a group of Edmonton municipal employees were being investigated for animal abuse, CMPF members launched a campaign to stop a new animal welfare officer from being installed. When the WCAW issued a press release, the group publicly thanked them for their support and asked them to „continue to be advocates for Alberta’s animals.“

That same month, CMPF released a public statement about a new proposal to overhaul Alberta’s animal welfare policies — a proposal called the „pink collar“ idea that would allow people who were already pet owners to now become pet advocates — which, if enacted, would effectively ban pit bull dogs. In this case, they claim that while the proposed ban would not stop people from being dog owners, it would create a „culture of fear in the community.“

However, in December, a majority of the city’s residents were told that dog abuse was no longer allowed. However, this wasn’t enough to stop a handful of CMPF members from holding a press conference, accusing the city’s animal welfare officials of protecting „dog-lovers.“

Two months later, in January, Alberta Agriculture Minister Ralph Goodale responded to CMPF by saying that he would meet with the organization to discuss the issue — but not before the group had filed complaints with local municipalities about Alberta’s animal welfare reform.

„There is no question that as new ideas emerge and new legislation passes, the best way to respond to such challenges is to engage with citizens and stakeholders to establish an open dialogue and learn from each other,“ wrote Goodale.

Since then, CMPF has said they’ve heard very little from the government about the issue. In May, they filed complaints with the province’s independent watchdog, who have since said they will not investigate the group’s complaints, as requested. Instead, they have promised to hold private meetings with the minister to „review the impact of any changes to animal welfare legislation.“

The „pink collar“ proposal, which is still under consideration, is the culmination of years of CMPF’s campaigns to push the government to end „animal cruelty“ — policies including banning dog walkers and pet-play bans. On April 18, the day before CMPF and other anti-puppy activists planned their first-ever rally, the government said it was ending its dog walk ban, though this did not take effect until Jun
