About the event

The hungry snipes – bird responses to restored wetlands in Mungalla

Presented by Simon Kennedy (BirdLife Australia)

Simon will talk about the response of birds to restoration of tidal conditions to wetlands at Mungalla Indigenous Protected Area on the Herbert River floodplain. The results suggest it is time to restore other North Queensland floodplain wetlands that have lost tidal connection and become "choked" with weeds, especially given the recent national threatened species listing of Latham's Snipe and Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, both of which migrate to this region in nationally significant numbers.
