Shorebird disturbance on Roebuck Bay
Presenter Dr Nyil Khwaja
Yawuru Nagulagun Roebuck Bay Marine Park is one of the most important wetlands in the world for migratory shorebirds. These shorebirds feed at low tide on the mudflats but come under stress at high tide as they are pushed onto beaches they share have to share with us and birds of prey. This talk presents new research on when, where and how shorebirds are disturbed at high tide and what this means for conserving these amazing birds.
Nhil Kwaja has been the Broome Bird Observatory Warden since 2019 and coordinated this project with funding from the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions. The important data collection has been done by volunteers. We hope the talk shows what a superb contribution they have made to shorebird conservation science.
