Friends of Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary

Affectionately known as FAIBS our group has been operating since 2016. We were established by a group of enthusiastic people who wanted to make a difference to our environment and specifically within the 60 kilometres of coastline running from Barker Inlet to Parham, which makes up the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary coastline and inland habitat is a terminal feeding and roosting ground utilised by over 20,000 migratory shorebirds each year as they return over 12,000 km from their northern breeding grounds in Alaska and the Russian Tundra. Within the Sanctuary is the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary National Park “Winaityinaityi Pangkara" (Kaurna language meaning 'Country belonging to all birds') covering 60km of coastline and 14,633 hectares.

Our group holds an activity day once a month within the Sanctuary, generally on the third of fourth Sunday.  Activities have included rubbish removal, trail maintenance, revegetation, plant and shorebird identification and monitoring. Please contact us via email at for further information. We hope to see you in the Sanctuary soon!
