Every summer, the east coast of New South Wales becomes a haven for threatened beach-nesting birds, such as the pied oystercatcher, hooded plover and beach stone-curlew. However, these birds are in danger and need your help. Every year less and less birds are successfully fledging, which has led to a steady decline in beach-nesting bird numbers.

Fishing guru ‘Starlo’, a local to the far South Coast of NSW, has some easy tips for how we can all help these shorebirds while we're out fishing during the tough nesting period.
