Citizens wanted for beach patrol

IF you don’t mind a stroll along the foreshore and have an interest in the conservation of the peninsula’s beach-nesting bird species, consider joining a community of citizen scientists this summer.

Natural Resources Northern and Yorke, with researchers from BirdLife Australia, are calling for people to join a monitoring program during the summer months.

The project allows people with little or no scientific background to make a positive contribution towards the conservation of four beach-nesting species on Yorke Peninsula home – the Hooded Plover, Red-capped Plover, Sooty Oyster­catcher and Pied Oystercatcher.
