How fortunate are we that we have this beautiful bird right at our back door? The hooded plover is a vulnerable species and it is our responsibility that we educate all members within our community to ensure that it is protected particularly throughout the breeding season.
On Wednesday 13th November we will be meeting a very special person, John Murray. John is a keen, dedicated and extremely passionate volunteer who is a member of “Bird Life Australia“. He is a person on a mission and alongside his fellow volunteers he continues to make a difference. John has, for years, been following the plight of our little feathered friends and we look forward to him sharing his knowledge and stories that will help us to understand just how important it is to care for our local environment and the flora and fauna within it.
When it’s Hoodie season, it’s not footy season!

UPDATE- March 2014-We are delighted to announce the survival of a few Hooded Plover chicks throughout the past breeding season.
Congratulations to all those community members who volunteered to spend so much time during the Summer months protecting these beautiful little birds. It is an absolute credit to all involved.
