Save our seabirds
During 30 years of rescuing and rehabilitating seabirds in New South Wales, Australian Seabird & Turtle Rescue (ASTR) has witnessed a dramatic increase in plastic ingestion, fishing line entanglements and hook embedding. Its campaign #dontcuttheline aims to bridge the gap between conservationists, communities and fishers to provide training on safe handling and capture of injured seabirds when first on the scene. ASTR’s aviary houses hundreds of rescued seabirds yearly. Please donate to the Australian Geographic Society to support ASTR’s mission to help injured seabirds.
