|About||We believe that communities connecting with nature strengthens those communities and enhances the environment.|
|Mission||Protecting birds and creating opportunities for local and visiting people!|
|Description|| The Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary is being created to help protect resident and migratory shorebirds that gather along the coast of Gulf St Vincent. Some of these migratory birds travel from Siberia, Alaska, Korea and beyond to reach our backyard to feed.
Each summer, at the peak of the migration season, the mudflats, mangroves and saltmarshes supports an estimated 27,000 shorebirds with 12 species occurring in internationally-significant numbers. Many of these birds are listed as threatened species.
