These special world travellers need your support to survive

Threatened migratory shorebirds like the Eastern Curlew, Curlew Sandpiper (pictured), and Lesser Sand Plover urgently need your help to survive.

When they can, they stop briefly for a quick layover along the route… But stop-over sites are becoming scarcer as wetlands are eliminated and development expands.

If any one of those stopping points isn’t safe for the birds, they can’t rest and refuel for the next leg – and they won’t be able to recover and feed when they reach Australia.

Without urgent action now, endangered migratory shorebirds like this Lesser Sand Plover are at risk of disappearing forever.

After flying for up to 13,000 kilometres at a time to reach our plentiful shores, these birds are not only extremely tired, but they’re literally starving. Please donate today.

Migratory Shorebirds

Australia's migratory shorebirds are incredible, many flying to and from the Northern Hemisphere every year. But sadly, because of the destruction of their habitats, hunting, and disturbance, their numbers have declined greatly.
