Summary
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 a child's outstretched arms will support her. But first, she must catch the wind ... Based on birds that live on Griffith Island, near Port Fairy, Victoria, "Windcatcher" is a tale of migration, conservation and survival that begins with one small bird called Hope
