Snap a Sanderling this summer and win!

Win an original artwork prize for leg-tagged flagged Sanderling this summer!

Are you at the beach this summer with a camera? We are looking for images of Sanderling birds – particularly those with leg tags on them.

The observation of Sandlering is an important part of the Discovery Bay Sanderling Tracking Project which is trying to find out the location of the birds to allow researchers to attach small tracking devices to some birds to better understand their migratory habits.

You can learn more about the project HERE

As incentive to get you snapping photos of their tags, we are offering a prize of a Jimmi Buscombe original painting of “Sanderling on Plantation Teak”.

The artwork prize will be similar to Jimmi’s previous In the Round series of works featuring Australian native birds.

You can see other examples of Jimmi’s artwork here: www.jimmibuscombe.com

Winners will be chosen from all the images with readable leg flags emailed to glenelgramsar@ghcma.vic.gov.au by 5pm Monday February 28 2022.

The winning image will be chosen by the Discovery Bay Sanderling Tracking Project Team.

Winners will be announced on March 15 by email and on the Glenelg Hopkins CMA Facebook page.
