Zoologist and artist turned pilot Amellia Formby has a dream of flying a microlight aircraft from Australia to Siberia to promote urgent action for shorebirds — a group of mostly wetland-dwelling birds that perform the longest feats of migration known to the natural world (25,000kms every year!).
Because of increasing economic development, many of these birds have lost access to areas they rely on for food during migration and are facing extinction in the near future.
She will be following the migration path of the smallest species of these shorebirds, the red-necked stint, with the aim of demonstrating "how important our environment, and the connections we all have to it, is to our survival and that of other species. When we care for the other species, we also indirectly care for ourselves because we share and rely upon the same environments as they do to survive."
She is currently crowdfunding to purchase a microlight aircraft, for a short Australian flight in 2019 and to Siberia in 2022... VISIT HER SITE
