Farewell Shorebirds

BirdLife Australia is launching an exciting nationwide event, Farewell Shorebirds, focusing on the fascinating lives of some of the 35 species of shorebirds. Farewell Shorebirds will run from mid-April until mid-May, concluding on World Migratory Bird Day (10 May). Highlighting the captivating story of the shorebirds’ annual global migration from Australia to the Arctic, Farewell Shorebirds will explore why the birds make this incredible journey and how they rely on Australia’s wetlands, coastlines and estuaries for their survival. With five weekly webcasts on our interactive website, events and activities run by our branches, observatories and reserves, Farewell Shorebirds will allow bird lovers of all shapes and sizes to learn more about shorebirds, follow their progress as they begin their travels, and to see live updates on the birds right up till they reach Korea!
