Conferences and Organisations
We stay in touch with a network of environmental organisations through membership and exchange newsletters with other Natural History Associations in our region. We are affiliated with Bushwalking Qld, which provides competitive insurance cover and provides a great networking opportunity for our bushwalkers. I recently attended a QTFN conference which was very interesting in understanding more about private nature refuges.

Campaigns
Via the VIC we are able to distribute educational circulars including RSPCA How to help wildlife pocket guide.

Submissions We made a number of Submissions including a joint submission with TML to SRRC Biodiversity Strategy.

Throughout the year the bird group and bushwalkers have held regular walks. The combination of nature and good company makes these very enjoyable outings.

Financially we continue to be in an extremely healthy position.

Many thanks to the management committee, and to all those who have assisted TMNHA throughout the year.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
