The Sand Island Stopover Tour
A Sand Island Stopover - Restoring the Noosa river's crucial shorebird habitat
Noosa Integrated Catchment Association (NICA), in partnership with Healthy Land & Water, are pleased to welcome you to the “Sand Island Stopover” project. The 12 month project is intended to complete rehabilitation of the Sand Island and adjacent areas in the Noosa River estuary to preserve critical habitat for numerous threatened shorebird species, identified in NICA’s recent Shorebird survey report. NICA will also monitor shorebird response to rehabilitation efforts and raise awareness of the shorebirds presence and plight.
This event is a 3 hour long trip by boat on the Noosa River with morning tea provided. You will be guided by NICA's team who will share project insights and local knowledge of the surrounding ecosystem.
Due to the nature of the small boat required to access the project area and the conditions on the island, participants will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing including enclosed footwear and be prepared to walk on uneven ground.
This event is being run in line with the current public health directives, please do not attend if you are experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19.
In the unforeseen circumstance this event needs to be cancelled, we will postpone the event to a later, suitable date.
The Sand Island Stopover project is funded by Healthy Land and Water (HLW) through the Australian Government National Landcare Program
