A baby Banded Lapwing (Vanellus tricolour) takes its first steps, carefully watched by its cautious parents. Should a bird of prey or any other immediate threats come close to the chick, the parents will dive into action, noisily swooping, completing distraction displays and more to protect their offspring.
Just like the Banded Lapwing parents, Bush Heritage is ambitiously protective when it comes to the Australian bush.
We’re committed to healthy country, protected forever and doubling our impact by 2030.
This bushgift supports Bush Heritage’s continued ecological work on our reserves across Australia. Find out more about Bush Heritage’s work.
