Bird group wants better species protection

Monday, 30/08/2010

Birds Australia says the organisation is imploring governments to think carefully about the development of their conservation policies.

The organisation's secretary, Allan Briggs, says governments changed their policies to focus on protecting whole ecosystems, rather than individual species.

He says that's a real concern, because protecting animals from extinction is complicated, and a "broad brush" approach shouldn't be used.

"This is a real difficulty for governments, They like to chop things up into easily digestible pieces, but this isn't an easily digestible piece," he says.

"We really need to be looking at the biodiversity and conserving it for future generations to enjoy."
