This exciting project is here to help restore the significant resting habitat of the critically endangered Eastern Curlew migratory shore bird. Each year these incredible birds travel more than 20,000 kilometres (round trip) as part of their yearly migration. They breed as far north as arctic circle within Russia and North-eastern China, and make their way to the eastern shores of Australia to rest in summer. On this epic journey, these birds face risks from increasing pressures of coastal habitat loss along their migratory route, limited access to food and resting sites and even hunting.
Conservation Volunteers, in partnership with National Parks and Wildlife, Threatened Species Recovery Fund and Sutherland Shire Council, are helping to restore some of the Eastern Curlews well-earned resting sites. This includes creating resting sites within their favourite habitat; wetlands, intertidal zones, mudflats and mangroves along Towra Point and in Quibray Bay. Volunteers will help create these resting sites through rubbish removal, controlling unauthorised access, clearing invasive species and planting native habitat.
You will be a part of an Australia wide conservation effort that aims to tackle the mounting international pressures these amazing birds face. Conservation Volunteers has 10 project sites stretching all the way from Darwin to Wollongong, so come and get involved in our newest project! We can’t wait to see you out there :)
A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER:
- Make sure you book your spot online. Spaces are limited and they do fill up!
- We offer a free pick up and drop off at Central Station for each project.
- No previous experience is required. We will provide you with all the know-how on site.
- We can provide you with a certificate of appreciation for coming along and helping out
