Beach-nesting Birds

Five Australian shorebirds, and many species of seabirds, rely on coastal habitats for nesting. Loss of coastal habitats and recreational pressures are taking a devastating toll.

The Beach-nesting Birds team receives over 14,000 records every season and uses the information collected by citizen scientists to improve the way beaches are managed and protected.
