BirdLife Australia will host an event at Toondah Harbour that members hope will stop plans by Walker Corp to develop the site.

Spokeswoman Judith Hoyle said more than 100 people would form a human chain on the mudflats on Saturday, May 11, as part of International Migratory Shorebird Day.

Ms Hoyle said the rally was being hosted to send a message to politicians about the importance of protecting wildlife. The message would be delivered one week ahead of the May 18 federal election.

“Our nature laws must be strengthened to protect these internationally important wetlands and the critically-endangered eastern curlew that rely on this site,” Ms Hoyle said. “This development cannot go ahead.”

The event will be at GJ Walter Park from 8am, with people encouraged to bring a picnic breakfast or turn up for a free sausage sizzle.
