A dou­ble-banded plover ( Charadrius bicinc­tus) chick at Lake Ellesmere, New Zealand. Th­ese shore­birds breed in New Zealand and then over­win­ter in Aus­tralia. Aus­tralia has 37 migratory waders, many of which are en­dan­gered. Eight mil­lion shore­birds mi­grate along a fly­way between Aus­trala­sia and the Arc­tic, re­ly­ing on in­ter­tidal zones, which are in­creas­ingly un­der threat.
