Join us for a morning of presentations about beach-nesting shorebirds from BirdLife Australia’s Coast and Marine Program Manager. Learn about our beach-nesting birds using our shores, the challenges facing birds that nest in coastal habitats, how to identify nesting behaviours and the conservation efforts occurring around Australia. Hear from guest speakers about key sites and local efforts to protect nesting terns and shorebirds. This will be followed by a beach walk (location TBA) to learn about the habitat and threats to resident beach-nesting birds.
