Bush Stone-Curlew Conservation Program

We partner with the Nature Conservation Working Group, a local NGO, on a bush stone-curlew conservation program, that has been running since 2005. It has successfully supplemented declining wild populations of bush stone-curlews in the Murray region with an annual captive breeding and release program.

The program has also successfully raised awareness of the endangered Bush stone-curlew through extensive media campaigns, magazine articles, schools education programs, DVDs, factsheets and speaking tours.

If you would like a copy of a Bush Stone-curlew brochure, sticker or DVD please contact Elisa Tack on the details below.

In 2014 Murray LLS and NCWG co-hosted the 'Curlew Summit', bringing together researchers and practitioners involved in curlew conservation across Australia to share information, collaborate and establish new partnerships. More information on the Summit and to download a copy of the Program/ Abstracts can be found here.
