With a wing-span of up to 16cm, the Richmond Birdwing is South East Queensland’s largest butterfly!
In this Christmas special episode of Back from the Brink, we delve into the life-cycle and conservation challenges facing this remarkable insect and look at how we can work together as a community to help save it from extinction.
Want to check out real life birdwings in the wild? Well you can! Take a visit to the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk between October and December and you may be lucky enough to witness these high-flyers for yourself!
Big thanks go to Seqwater, Birdwings Forest School, Ngarangwal Gold Coast Aboriginal Association Inc., Richmond Birdwing Conservation Network and Tamborine Skywalk for your support with this production and all the other great work you do!
