Event Details

Do you like walking along the beach?

Ever wanted to get involved in protecting your local environment?

Keen to volunteer on a local community program?

If you have answered yes to any of these, we have the activity for you!

Hooded plovers are an easily recognisable threatened species that live on your local beaches. It’s not every day you step onto the beach and see a threatened species.

BirdLife Australia has been working to improve the conservation outlook for Hooded Plovers for over 15 years – but it takes a community to save these birds.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of this conservation project. They help with monitoring the bird, finding nests, recording information, protecting nests and chicks and raising awareness.

Come along to a free volunteer information session, where you’ll learn more about the roles you can play in helping the Hooded Plover and receive training on how to safely monitor this threatened species. Learn from one of our beach-nesting bird experts and meet other volunteers from the Friends of the Hooded Plover South Gippsland group.

Please bring along wet weather gear, sun protection – be prepared for any weather, and binoculars for the breach walk (if you have them). Please advise of any special dietary requirements at time of RSVP. Light lunch and beach walk included.

Follow this link to RSVP and you can call Kasun on 0433 964 484 for any further information.

This event is supported by the Australian Government – National Landcare Program, Friends of the Hooded Plover South Gippsland, Coastcare Victoria and BirdLife Australia.
