Every summer, the south coast of New South Wales becomes a haven for threatened beach-nesting birds. 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. There’s only 70 hooded plovers left in New South Wales – all of these are found on the South Coast!

Fishing guru ‘Starlo’, a local to the far South Coast, has some easy tips for how we can all help these shorebirds through the tough nesting period.
