The “Qld Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing” has put up warning signs discouraging the feeding of native wildlife:
“It’s hard to resist – but do not feed the birds!
Native animals that are fed human food may:
• become sick or
• overpopulate the area
• bite, kick, peck or scratch you and other park visitors
Please help the animals and all park users. Let native animals find their own food.”
