Incredible bird journeys

Sunday, 3 May 2020 - 11:30am to 12:00pm
Shorebirds in flight

Did you know one shorebird flew nonstop from Alaska to New Zealand across the Pacific Ocean, a journey of over 11,000 kilometres? In this episode we're all about bird journeys. We speak to Andrew Darby about his wonderful new book Flight Lines, and how he followed two grey plover on their perilous journey north to the Artic. Plus we catch up with Dr Dejan Stojanovic to talk about orange-bellied parrots, the world's most endangered parrots, and how they travel between the coasts of southern Australia and Tasmania across Bass Strait. 

Sunday 11:30am to 12:00pm
Information about marine and coastal environments. News and interviews with marine scientists, campaigners and conservation workers. Presented by volunteer broadcasters who are passionate about marine environments, both local and across the world.
