What is a ‘shorebird roosting and feeding area’?

0

Shorebird roosting and feeding areas have been designated to protect shorebirds from disturbance by people, vehicles, aircraft and domestic animals. In particular, migratory shorebirds arrive on our shores early in summer and stay to the following autumn to feed and replenish their energy reserves for their return migration to the northern hemisphere. The entire Great Sandy Strait and some key sites in Hervey Bay, including Pelican Banks, are designated shorebird roosting and feeding areas in recognition of their significance for shorebirds.
