BirdLife Australia - Act for Birds

Community Forum, Sydney

Venue: Room 04.400, Building 11, University of Technology Sydney, 81 Broadway, Ultimo

Join BirdLife in Sydney this May to hear about how nature laws are failing our birds  and what we can do to help them.

The most important Shorebird Site in NSW - the Hunter Estuary - is being degraded, with major declines in shorebird numbers. At the same time, habitat for the Critically Endangered Regent Honeyeater is being lost, fragmented and degraded. With less than 400 adult birds left, every remaining piece of habitat (including in the Hunter region just north of Sydney) is critical to their survival. But is it protected? 

BirdLife Australia is calling for stronger nature laws that genuinely protect our wonderful birds and their precious habitats. Our Act for Birds campaign is live, our report just launched, and across the environmental movement as a whole we're starting to see the extinction crisis getting the national media attention it deserves. 

Our real power to secure stronger nature laws – and better outcomes for birds - lies in the stories and voices of local bird-lovers from around the country. So BirdLife will be hosting 8 community forums across the country! 

Come along to our community forum to learn more about local case studies and the national issues that underlie them. You'll get the opportunity to share ideas, refine tactics and take practical actions together to make a real difference for the places and birds you love! 

Tea, coffee and delicious snacks will be provided.

Stickers, posters, fact sheets and hard copies of BirdLife's recent report will be available to take home on the night. 

Places are free but limited so it's essential that you RSVP.
