Red-capped Plover monitoring training workshop

BirdLife Australia’s Beach Nesting Birds Project are holding a workshop in Point Leo,where you can learn about one of Australia’s most tenacious beach-nesting birds, the Red-capped 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: Saturday 28th October

Location: Point Leo Committee of Management Offices, Point Leo Road, Point Leo

Time: 9.15am – 12pm, (12.30pm – 1.30pm, field trip). light morning tea and lunch provided.
