Mallard facebook group for Tasmania

I have decided to make a facebook group about the impact of mallard hybridisation on Pacific Black Ducks in Tasmania, and the impacts of feeding ducks. Facebook as has a strong positive impact as far aiding in the increased awareness of several environmental and wildlife issues in Tasmania over the last decade. For example, ten years ago, suggesting that a cat should be contained 24/7 would result in verbal assault, and hardly anybody knew that kookaburras were introduced to Tasmania. The control and eradication of mallards depends so much on public support of councils and government that I think it's time to try and get the word out on facebook. The group focuses on Tasmania as it's where I'm focusing my efforts and as far as I'm aware, is the only place in Australia that has government and NGO members (Glenorchy City Council, Derwent Estuary Program, Birdlife Tasmania) actively working on the issue. But please don't let that stop you from joining the page!
