About The Event
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 the 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, Windcatcher is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope.
