Migratory shorebirds are a diverse group of birds with a variety of unique adaptations that allow them to fly from the Arctic to Australia and back each year. For over 30 years a citizen science program has been monitoring these fascinating birds throughout Australia. In recent years these monitoring data for sites across Australia have revealed large declines in many migratory shorebirds. Find out more at our meeting.
