Friends of the Hooded Plover Mornington Peninsula

Hooded Plover Voluntary Warden Program

What We Do:

The Friends of the Hooded Plover Mornington Peninsula (FoHPMP) were offocially formed in 2010 and is a group of volunteers dedicated to the protection of Hooded Plover chicks and nesting sites. Each year hundreds of Hooded Plover eggs are destroyed and far too many chicks die in the first few weeks of their life. Currently there are less than 400 Hooded Plovers left in Victoria. You can help Hooded Plovers on the Mornington Peninsula by spending a day on the beach protecting a Hooded Plover Chick. It’s easy, fun and you’ll be part of a team of volunteers all over the state helping Hooded Plovers survive. FoHPMP hold regular counts for Hooded Plovers within the Mornington Peninsula National Park and also coordinates volunteers who want to be a warden during the breeding season.
