Farewell Shorebirds – Are you up for the challenge?

BirdLife AustraliaBirdlife Australia initiative is challenging Australians to do as many kilometers as shorebirds do to go breeding in the Arctic. Will you join?

Right now over five million shorebirds are migrating from Australia to breed in the Arctic – for some that’s the equivalent of doing 309 consecutive marathons with only one or two drink stops along the way. And what’s more, once they have nested and raised their young, they turn around and do it all again.

All the information you need in order to register your human-powered kilometres against the bird-powered kilometres is available at the Birdife Australia website.
