South Australian Shorebird Alliance (SASA) to carve out Action Plan
In 2017, the formation of a South Australian Shorebird Alliance (SASA) was initiated. The SASA is a collaboration involving multiple government and not-for-profit organisations to support community efforts in South Australia (SA) to protect resident and migratory shorebirds, including beach-nesting birds. SASA also focuses on implementing the key priorities of the National Migratory Shorebird Conservation Action Plan in SA.
BirdLife Australia plays a key role as a steering committee member of the SASA and facilitated a workshop at University of Adelaide 18-19 October 2018 to start the process of drafting a SA Migratory Shorebird Conservation Action Plan. The results of this workshop will be discussed at the next SASA meeting in Adelaide on 4 February 2019 and actions to be taken in SA prioritised. SA would be the first Australian state to have its own regional plan.
