Australia has been a Partner since 2006 and is home to 24 Flyway Network Sites, designated under the specifications set by EAAFP. It is home to millions of birds, such as godwit, knot and curlew, escaping the winters of the northern hemisphere to feed and don their breeding plumage.

Birdlife Australia have embarked on a yearly outreach program called ‘Farewell Shorebirds‘ to bid farewell to the birds as they set off on annual migration north to breed.
