Project 5.1.1 Far Eastern Curlew are critically endangered. Coastal areas and saltpans are very important for migratory shorebirds. Shell midden sites are culturally important to Larrakia People. Saltpans and mangroves provide shellfish for Larrakia People and for coastal shorebirds. We can protect the coastal environment and the birds as they overlap in this area.
