Windcatcher: Migration of the Short-Tailed Shearwater
Follow the amazing 30,000 kilometre annual migration of the short-tailed shearwater.
A short-tailed shearwater flies from the edge of the Southern Ocean to the rim of the Arctic Circle – and back – every year. This remarkable 30,000 kilometre journey is driven by seabird law.
Instinct and community will guide her.
A wingspan the size of a child’s outstretched arms will support her.
But first, she must catch the wind …
Based on birds that live on Griffiths Island, near Port Fairy, Victoria, Windcatcher is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope.
