Shearwater birds will be travelling down the the coast on their annual migration. Unfortunately, some birds are unable to complete their migration, dying of exhaustion along the way, and washing up on our beaches.

Did you know that some Shearwaters nest on Mudjimba Island every year?

Queensland Parks and Wildlife will be undertaking a leg banding program on shearwaters nesting on Mudjimba Island – for information about the leg banding program, look here.

If you find a shearwater washed up on the beach, and it has a leg band, please retrieve the band if possible, and contact QPWS on 07 5459 6110.
