Hooded Plovers on King Island need some attention

King Island still has a healthy population of Hooded Plovers - we think - but on the mainland they are threatened. It would be great to do some surveys on KI to better understand our population. Attached is the lateset BirdLife Beach-nesting Bird Newsletter, that I hope may inspire someone to start monitoring the populations we have here.
