Our friends from the Nature Coast Marine Group have asked us to share this event.
Attached is a notice about a workshop on rescuing pelicans and other shorebirds that have been injured by fishing tackle and other debris. The workshop, which will be run by Australian Seabird Rescue South Coast, will be held at Narooma on Saturday 22 February. Anyone wishing to go should contact the organisers direct at the phone number/ email address on the flyer.
It’s not well known that pelicans and other seabirds are at high risk of injury from fishing gear, with many of them ingesting hooks and getting tangled in line. If they are not treated, the result is often a painful death.
Anyone unable to go to the workshop but who might be interested in becoming involved in future work in the area on pelican rescue should contact Barbara Barker on 4473 53404.Pelican workshop posterNarooma 22 feb 14
