Wharf to Wharf – Sharing the Shoreline – National Science Week Program
Wednesday 18th August
The South Coast is home to many threatened shorebird species including the critically endangered Hooded Plovers. This program allows students to be immersed into the world of the shorebird while visiting Bournda National Park. Students will have the opportunity to meet National Parks and Wildlife staff who coordinate the South Coast Shorebird Program, to protect and conserve these amazing animals. While learning about shorebird protection students will explore the amazing ecosystems of Bournda National Park.
Prior to the visit students will research the life and habitat of these local birds using an interactive iBook prepared by Bournda EEC and NPWS. They will prepared advice for users of the Wharf to Wharf walk on how to minimise any impacts on the shorebird habitat.
Program cost – Nil
