Come learn about the plight of migratory shorebirds, the good news story happening at Yandina wetlands, waterbird ecology, and the need for citizen science waterbird monitoring.
Migratory shorebirds are declining rapidly, with some now listed as critically endangered in Australia.
This the enlightening workshop will cover what makes migratory shorebirds so incredible and why their populations are in trouble. It will also touch on the good news stories which are likely going to help migratory shorebirds.
Then discover the remarkable ecology of Australia's waterbirds, who track temporary resources across vast distances. On the Sunshine Coast, the restoration of a wetland near Yandina demonstrates the kinds of actions we can take in Australia to help waterbirds.
However, for many waterbirds, there is not enough data to tell how populations are tracking, or to demonstrate the positive impact a place like Yandina can provide. The workshop concludes by going over the simple steps most anyone can take to help us understand waterbird populations.
Following the workshop, you can visit a local wetland and help BirdLife Southern Queensland count and track the Sunshine Coast's waterbirds.
