TuturuatuShore Plover

Conservation status
In serious trouble

One of the rarest shorebirds. The shore plover can be quite the actor, particularly when parenting instincts come in during the nesting periods. These queens of drama use a “broken wing display" – where they cry in pain and flutter – to draw attention to themselves, and away from the chicks, when a predator may threaten the chicks' safety.

Shyr Godfrey - Forty Thieves

Forty Thieves is delighted to represent the Shore Plover. Tuturuatu has a population of roughly 200, making it one of the rarest Shore Birds. Known as the 'Drama Queens' of the island, it's a natural choice for Forty Thieves, who love a bit of colour & flare!

This is our first year working with Forest & Bird and we are committed to making an impact. For the whole month of November we'll donate 15c from every jar sold of our newest product; SuperFood Butter, both in supermarkets and online.

We chose our newest nut butter as it's packed with a range of crunchy seeds; delicious and healthy for humans and birds alike!
