Gouldian-finches-photos It is not difficult to download and keep Gouldians, but they do have some very specific needs if you want them to live long, happy, healthy lives . It is my hope that this site, guide book and my free monthly ezine, full of tips will enhance your experiences while living with the Lady Gouldian Finch. About this book. A Guide to Gouldian Finches covers all requirements to successfully breed and maintain Gouldian Finches including concise information on.

In that way, my donation could hopefully be made larger.

And even though the Gouldian is apparently considered safe from going extinct due to domestic breeding in world aviculture, there will be something gone terribly wrong if we lose them in nature.

Their rapid demise is shocking.

But it is wonderful that there is a dedicated team at the location, trying to understand what has gone wrong and how to repair the damage before it is too late. We must maintain the habitat where they once flourished so we can continue to learn how to care for them domestically. Marcus is a founding member, and currently serves as Communications Officer for the Fund.

I have asked Marcus to share a few words about the fund, and he has most graciously agreed to tell us more. So please bear with me while I take you for a wander through the hectic time that has been the formation of the STGF. I was asked by Mike and Elisabeth Fidler in whether I would be interested in helping form this body and to assist them in the daunting task of raising funds for research into the reasons for the decline of this iconic finch species and to help with its restoration in the wild.

Sitting in the middle of the Kimberley region of Western Australia in 29 degree sunshine watching Australian finches of all species flitting around, I was eager to "do my bit" for this worthy cause.

The results of my research that followed painted a very sad picture indeed for many of the grain-eating birds of the Kimberley area. Decades of poorly managed fire regimes which were aimed at simply producing green biomass to feed cattle with no thought to seed production for avian species, combined with the stocking rates for cattle in the 's which increased the number of cattle per hectare, resulted in a massive decrease in the available seed stocks throughout the region.

Mike and Elisabeth Fidler hail from England and have been involved with the Gouldian for over 27 years, and they now call Australia home. This property was established with the aim of creating a sanctuary amid the cattle belt to investigate the reasons for the decline of the Gouldian in the wild.

With the removal of the cattle and the adoption of a more controlled, natural fire regime throughout the property, the increase in Gouldians over the past 2 years has been encouraging indeed. The AWC holds a regular Gouldian count every September which is staffed by volunteers from all over the globe. AWC appointed Dr. Sarah Legge as the chief scientific officer for Mornington, and in collaboration with Dr. Steve Murphy, they have set about unraveling the riddle of the decline of this species.

The first donation from the STGF to the AWC research efforts was of an all-terrain eight wheeled Argo vehicle which would allow the researchers to follow the Gouldians through both the wet and dry seasons. Following this, we now provide a half-time salary for a Gouldian research assistant so that when Dr. Legge's duties take her elsewhere there is always someone on hand to continue the task of gathering data on the Gouldian project. Not content with simply funding many facets of the wild research, Mike and Elisabeth also turned their home in New South Wales, Australia into a research station for Dr.

Youngsters bred at the correct time of the year complete their juvenile moult at the same time as adult Gouldians. Very detailed -- i refer to this book often.
