2. Calling all beach-lovers!

Do you love your local beach and all it's natural inhabitants?

Why not spend a bit of time on our southern beaches Protecting Hooded Plovers with the Hooded Plover team and BirdLife Australia ?

Volunteers provide support for breeding Hoodies through fencing of nest areas and signage. They also monitor the Hoodies’ breeding success.  Last year reported a great success of 43 fledglings produced from 103 pairs. Without protection, chick numbers from those breeding pairs could have been as low as 3 chicks! video

BirdLife Australia is organising a training workshop in Warrnambool during the last weekend of October - check out the Hooded Plover  page for more details of other events. Or register here to become volunteer:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BNBregistrationform.

 

Birdlife Australia is delivering this project, together with Glenelg Hopkins CMA in a coordinated effort to improve the protection of this cute little shore bird with funding through the Australian Government's National Landcare Program.
