About this event

Join us to hear Journalist and author of 'Flight Lines', Andrew Darby and Birdlife Tasmania Convenor, Eric Wohler talk about Tasmanian migratory shorebirds with a specific focus on threats to their survival here, including the Robbins Island proposed wind farm.

Migratory shorebirds undertake the longest known migration of any species, flying the length of the east Asian Australasian Flyway from Australia to the Arctic Circle in order to breed each year. Destruction and degradation of their wetland and intertidal habitats have had an enormous impact on their populations with up to an 80% decline over the past few decades.

The talk will be accompanied by photographs by Rob Blaker's taken on Robbins Island

The event is free, however we ask you to register to maintain COVID safe numbers in the gallery.
