We hope you can support this event that is aiming to send a strong message to the government that the community continue to oppose the environmentally destructive development being proposed for Toondah Harbour.
Please register through Eventbrite –
We invite you to join us to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day at GJ Walter Park at the end of Shore Street East, Cleveland on 8th May from 4–6:30PM for a community action event to continue our fight to save precious habitat at Toondah Harbour.
World Migratory Bird Day celebrates all migratory birds and their incredible journeys across the globe. Migratory birds connect us across the world with their unique song and flight and remind us of the importance of working together across borders to protect them.
On Saturday 8th May, we will gather at twilight along the foreshore in a line of lights in the mud. We want to show Environment Minister Sussan Ley that we are united in our opposition to the Walker Corporation proposal to put a 3,600-unit private luxury apartment complex on Ramsar-listed wetland habitat, destroying it forever.
This is similar to the Line in the Mud event in 2019, but our line will be lights in the mud during twilight.
We hope you can join us to celebrate the incredible feat of our migratory shorebirds. Every year Eastern Curlews travel around 10,000 km to the Arctic circle and back to breed and feed at Toondah Harbour.
There will be food trucks, tea and coffee, and the chance to chat about the environmental and liveability impacts of the proposal with some of the community groups, who have come together to save Toondah Harbour.
Due to covid restrictions our numbers are limited to 400, please make sure to RSVP and register here.
Please download the Qld Covid app before you arrive, and also bring a mask if you are unable to social distance.
Wear something warm and see you there.
Yours in solidarity,
Convenor BirdLife Southern Queensland
