Shorebirds of Southern Sydney – FREE Webinar

October 13 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Join us for an evening webinar to learn about the migratory shorebirds of Southern Sydney.

At this time of year migratory shorebirds can be seen in Southern Sydney at the Towra Point Nature Reserve Ramsar site, as well as in areas along the Georges River and Port Hacking. These birds have travelled thousands of kilometres, across multiple continents, over many days to reach our local shores. They are incredible birds with astounding stories of survival against the odds. These birds are currently feeding and resting in our beautiful local estuaries.

Migratory shorebird experts Debbie Andrew and Julie Keating will talk to us about the shorebird journeys and how we can all help protect them.

You will have the opportunity to participate and ask questions.

GSLLS is working with local partners including NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service, Sutherland Shire Council, and the Georges Riverkeeper on a range of actions to improve local habitat for shorebirds such as Eastern Curlews and Bar tailed Godwits.
