Native animals

The Fitzroy Region boasts many of Australia’s well known native animals – like the platypus, kangaroo, and kookaburra. It is also home to a number of native animals that are found no-where else in Queensland, Australia or even the world.

These endemic species and all our other native plants and animals are protected under State and/or Federal legislation, and rely on us to help them survive.

FBA works with universities, government departments, local councils, volunteer groups and landholders to protect and restore the places, food sources and conditions that our native animals need to thrive and we also teach people what they can do to help.
