The Bar-tailed Godwit is a fishing bird that lives on sand and mud-dwelling invertebrates found along the estuarine areas of the Parramatta River. Foreshore birds like the Godwit demonstrate we are maintaining our mangroves, saltmarsh and mudflats against urbanisation, pollution, weeds, erosion and reclamation.

We will be designing community based projects around the Bar-tailed Godwit based on our Ecological Health Report. We are in the process of setting up a Godwit working group. If you are specifically interested in the Godwit, please sign up to the Riverkeeper network and select "Godwit" to register your interest.
