Conservation Volunteers will be helping to restore important habitat to protect the critically endangered eastern curlew, a large wading shorebird reaching up to 66cm tall. The eastern curlew requires two types of habitats to survive, one within the tidal zone, mudflats, and mangrove swamps and one above it amongst sand dunes and salt pans when their feeding ground becomes inundated. It has an elongated curved bill for finding food in mudflats, and long legs that enable them to wade throughout mudflats.

We will be undertaking different restoration activities and bird surveys to improve their habitat at Lee Point Reserve. Depending on the time of year, you might see other migratory bird species, waders and nesting turtles on the beach.
