Tread Lightly, Hoodies Nesting

Join a Ranger on a guided walk through Hooded Plover territory. These endangered shorebirds live and breed on our ocean beaches throughout Southern Australia. Learn the plight of the plover, including its habitat, breeding cycle, threats, population monitoring and why they need our protection. With less than 600 Hooded Plovers left in all of Victoria…let’s tread carefully.

Please bring water, sunscreen, hat, insect repellent, and wear enclosed shoes and appropriate clothing for the weather.

This activity is suitable for children aged 6-12, who must be accompanied by a parent or guardian aged 18 or over. Access involves walking along beaches and stairs – may not be suitable for prams.

Please note that we are running all of our Junior Ranger activities in strict accordance with DHHS guidelines to minimise the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission. This includes restrictions on group sizes, as well as adherence to social distancing and hygiene related guidelines. 

While these measures are aimed at minimising the risk of COVID-19 transmission, you acknowledge that you are participating in these activities at your own risk.
