Western Port Welcomes Waterbirds - Information Sessions

San Remo 31-May or Hastings 1-Jun-2011

The Central Coastal Board invites you to a Community Information Session


The Western Port Welcomes Waterbirds project aims to provide evidence-based information on the waterbird key high tide roosts and feeding areas in Western Port, the threats operating at those sites and recommendations for improved management of habitats.  This project is now drawing to a close and the final information sessions
are being held.

The sessions will focus on the scientific report by the Arthur Rylah Institute (ARI) titled, Improving Our Understanding of Waterbirds Usage of Western Port, which aims to identify key waterbird habitats, and address current and projected threats. In addition, there will be some brief presentations by stakeholders on the future management and care of key sites.

Please select which of the two sessions you would like to attend and book your place.

Please RSVP to David Connors by Tuesday 23 May 2011 and confirm:

  • Your name and your organisation
  • Which workshop you will be attending
  • Any special dietary requirements you may have

Whale Watch

There are many whales seen in our area but few sightings are formally recorded - so there is no evidence of these. So, if you see a whale, please:

- Take a photo and/or note the fin and tail shape, plus any markings

- Note the time/day/location

Then e-mail this info to our local Whale Watcher by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
