Hooded Plover Conservation Workshop

  • Crossley, Victoria (map)

BirdLife Australia is holding a workshop where you can learn more 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 by going on the beach walk, and watching some amazing video footage indoors, offering rare insights into breeding and chick behaviour.

Location: Crossley Hall: 212 Koroit-Pt Fairy Rd, Crossley
Time: Saturday 28th October, 10:00am – 12:30pm (indoors); Field trip to start at 12:30pm
