Event Update - Toondah Harbour

Hi ,


Crowds came out in force last Saturday with over 500 people linking arms to ‘draw a line in the mud’ against inappropriate development at Toondah Harbour, south of Brisbane. And this couldn’t have happened without the vision, passion and commitment of our local volunteers.

In an incredible show of support, especially for migratory shorebirds like the Critically Endangered Eastern Curlew, a bird that flies 10,000 km from Russia to fatten up on our shores, the message was clear:

Our political leaders must protect important habitat for the Eastern Curlew and other migratory shorebirds. They must abide by our national and international obligations and say no to a development that will permanently destroy parts of a significant Ramsar wetland.

Losing this habitat will be one of a thousand cuts to our migratory shorebird population and bird lovers will not stand for it.

Toondah Harbour is just one of many examples where our nature laws have failed to protect threatened species and the places they call home.

This election comes at a critical time. We must show politicians that birds matter to us, we expect that they are genuinely protected, and we will be voting to strengthen Australia’s failing environmental laws.

Please, stand with us in calling for new nature laws that will prevent the extinction of the Australian birds we love so much.

It’s not too late to contact your local candidate today and let them know you want stronger nature laws and you will be voting 1 for birds!


Let’s keep standing together!
