Hooded Plover Biennial Count
Every two years in mid-November, volunteers take part in a population census of Hooded Plovers across all ocean beaches of the Eastern mainland. This gives us the best estimate of population size as well as a snapshot of threats across the range of this highly threatened beach-nesting bird.
From Wollongong to Ceduna, we aim to survey all ocean beaches in between and count the number of ‘Hoodies’ plus other beach-nesting shorebird and seabird species we see!
This massive feat of surveying 2,300km of coastline in a 2-week period is not possible without your help! An online induction is available for further training if required and there are opportunities to partner up with experienced observers.
Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org to be put in contact with your local Regional Coordinator.
