Strategic Planning for the Far Eastern Curlew

Charles Darwin University, Australia

This project will analyse the relationship between feeding and roosting habitat of the Far Eastern Curlew (Numenius madagascariensis) within Darwin Harbour of the Northern Territory. The aim is to develop strategic guidelines for the conservation of this Critically Endangered species. The project will assess the overall availability of suitable habitats, the impacts of developments within the Darwin Port and the ways in which these impacts could be mitigated. This information will be used to guide sustainable development and give certainty to Departmental policy decision makers, assessment officers, proponents, developers, planners and regulators about habitat protection and offsets.
