Bird Life
We are gearing up for the Welcome Back Shorebirds event on Saturday 21st September at the Toondah Harbour Foreshore and couldn’t be more excited!

We hope to see you there as we celebrate the return of our amazing travellers back to their home shores. If you are joining us be sure to come say hey on the day, we will be sporting our stylish Act for Birds t-shirts.

There is still time to RSVP but we understand not everyone will be able to make it. Don’t fret as there are other ways you can support our birds on the day.

We want to make hundreds of shorebird cut-outs to line up along the shore to highlight what is at stake if Walker Corporation’s Toondah Harbour development goes ahead.

Can you help us to make these cutouts and keep up the campaign to protect migratory shorebirds at Toondah Harbour?

CleanUp Australia Day

UpdateCleanupAustralia-Day-201
Some intrepid BIEPA volunteers hit White Patch on Bribie Island this year for the annual Clean Up Australia Day.  This year is special as we remember founder, Ian Kiernan AO, who passed away October 2018.

Our usual haunts for this event are Buckley’s Hole, Shirley Creek and Woorim Beach, but we decided to spread the word further afield.

Our volunteers collected 13 bags of rubbish including a huge amount of wire mesh that some not-so-thoughtful person had dumped in the National Park.

Cleaning-up AustraliaEveryone had a lot of fun and we thank all those who came out to clean up White Patch.

BIEPA’s meeting location for the CLEAN UP Australia Day event will be at White Patch Esplanade opposite Coondiba Street.  From there, volunteers will choose to go north to the Rangers Station or South to Wrights Creek and back.
CleanUp Australia Day
STORY OF THE PHOTO ON THE POSTER:   A BIEPA member was walking along Woorim beach one morning and saw a red can scurrying around in the sand.  The can was being dragged by a little crab whose claw was caught in the can.  Of course, the BIEPA member released the crab from its trap.  No, the crab wasn’t intoxicated.
A reminder that rubbishing Bribie Island is impacting even our smallest creatures.
We look forward to seeing you on the day.

Speaker Biography: Patrick Nunn is a geographer and climate-change scientist who has been researching in the Pacific Islands region for more than thirty years. He has current projects in the Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu that look at the reasons why most external interventions for climate-change adaptation fail to be either effective or sustained. With others having a long-term involvement with the IPCC, he shared the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize; he was Lead Author on the “Sea Level Change” chapter in AR5 and has been appointed Lead Author on the “Small Islands” chapter in AR6. In May 2018, he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland. He has authored over 250 peer-reviewed publications including several books, such as “Climate, Environment and Society in the Pacific during the Last Millennium” (Elsevier, 2007) and the more popular “Vanished Islands and Hidden Continents of the Pacific” (University of Hawaii Press, 2009). A recent article in The Conversation summarises Patrick’s views on faith-informed adaptation interventions – see https://tinyurl.com/khzm6nl
