Australian Shorebird Monitoring

The Australian Shorebird Monitoring Project provides vital information on shorebird declines in Australia and the factors that may cause them. The database comprises the most complete shorebird count data available in Australia and helps to uncover significant population changes over the long term.

To conserve shorebirds, it is critical that we understand the factors that affect their populations. Continued monitoring is necessary to inform the best management practices to maintain shorebird populations in Australia.
