Hooded Plover monitoring training workshop

  • Sorrento Australia (map)

BirdLife Australia’s Beach Nesting Birds Project are holding a workshop in Sorrento, where you can learn about Australia’s most threatened beach-nesting bird, the Hooded Plover. Learn about their amazing behaviours and how to give them a helping hand. All are welcome!

Improving the conservation outlook for beach-nesting shorebirds is incredibly challenging given these birds nest in habitats so popular for human recreation. Find out about the threats faced by these birds, efforts to improve their breeding success, and learn how you can get involved. Learn how to interpret the quirky behaviours of the birds, and watch some amazing video footage, offering rare insights into breeding and chick behaviour.

When: Thursday 26th October

Location: Sorrento Community Centre, 860-868 Melbourne Road, Sorrento

Time: 6pm – 8.30pm, light supper provided

Please RSVP to or 03 9347 0757. Please advise of dietary requirements.
