More from this Mission Team...

What are we doing?

Working, advocating, and collaborating to secure a future for the threatened Shorebirds of Bribie Island and surrounds.

Why are we doing it?

Resident and migratory shorebird populations continue to decline, so we need to do more to protect critical shorebird habitat. We believe that on Bribie Island, Australia's obligations under the Ramsar Convention on the protection of wetlands are not being met by Federal, State and Local Authorities.

How are we doing it?

We create community engagement events and social awareness designed to raise the profile of Bribie Island's shorebirds, inform the public about these remarkable animals and engender a sense of responisbility for their protection.

We advocate for best-practice management of internationally significant migratory shorebird roosts in Pumicestone Passage adjacent the urbann footprint: Kakadu Beach, Toorbul, and Buckley's Hole.

We undertake citizen science shorebird observations to inform the call for better shorebird protections.

We support the work of Qld Wader Study Group,  Redcliffe Environmental Forum and ESRAG activities for coordinated action on threatened shorebirds of the NW Moreton Bay region Ramsar Site.

Project Tasks

See if there are any specific tasks you can help with to make progress on this project. If every BIEPA member takes on just one task, we will have a huge impact on protecting nature on Bribie Island.
