'Distressing': Gladstone kids destroy plover's nest: reports

THE Gladstone District Wildlife Carers Association has pleaded with residents to educate their friends and family about protecting native wildlife after a horrific incident last week.

The volunteer group was called to an emergency where it was reported that young children destroyed a plover's nest and hurt one of the parent birds.

"This is very distressing to hear and have our carers respond to," they wrote on their Facebook page.

"Please know all native wildlife are protected by law.

"We live amongst some of the most fascinating native creatures in our local region.

"It is not our right to cause such pain and destruction to such voiceless creatures."

"Please take the opportunity to educate your friends, your children, ourselves to the importance and significance of protecting our fragile native wildlife and their ecosystems."

To contact the group phone 0427 106 803.
