BIEPA Securing Shorebirds ProjectMilly's Shorebird Flying Adventure - Next Stop Bribie!
Hey Kids! Join a FREE morning of nature, science and art when shorebird adventurer Milly Formby comes to Bribie!
“Migratory shorebirds are a living expression of how we're all connected through a global, ecological network” says Milly. “And while they’re at our beaches, they’re a doorway into nature that we can see every day.”
Conservationist, scientist, artist and pilot Milly Formby is making a 'round Australia flight' creating awareness of the world's most endangered group of bird species: migratory shorebirds.
Migratory shorebirds make an awe-inspiring 25,000km round-trip journey from Australia to the Arctic each year to breed. Milly will be completing a similar distance in 180 flying days, in a microlight specifically chosen because it is the most like how shorebirds fly: at about 50 to 55 knots, or just under 100kph.
FREE KIDS EVENT 29 April 2023 (10:30-12:00 noon)
Milly captures the imagination of children and adults alike through activities that mix art, nature, and technology, engaging primary school-aged children with science stories to help encourage a new generation of optimistic problem-solvers.
