Roebuck Bay’s shorebirds are an inspiration for their ability to navigate and fly 10,000kms each year to breed in the Arctic Circle. However their migration is under threat as described in the Weekend Australian by Environment Editor Graham Lloyd. Broome’s shorebird expert Chris Hassell is quoted in the story. To read more about the migration and situation in the Yellow Sea, get hold of the book, Invisible Connections by Jan van der Kam from Broome Bird Observatory and Kimberley Bookshop »
