The Fleurieu Peninsula is a place of diverse habitat, and it is possible without travelling far, to observe birds of the ocean, estuary, river, wetlands, scrub and farmland.

The Lower Murray, Lakes and Coorong is wetland of international importance under the RAMSAR Convention, and an important site for migratory wading birds.

We encourage awareness of the environment, and recognise the need for sustainability and improvement. We acknowledge the importance of avifauna in the overall biodiversity of our area.
