Location: Papua New Guinea, Australia
The Great Knot breeds on gravelly areas covered with lichen and patches of herbs, heather (del Hoyo et al. 1996), Empetrum spp., Dryas spp. and Vaccinium spp.(Johnsgard 1981), or alternatively on areas with a continuous layer of lichen and scattered stunted larch Larix spp. or dwarf pine Pinus pumila (del Hoyo et al. 1996).
The breeding grounds of the Great Knot have been decimated by #agriculture and #palmoil plantations in #PapuaNewGuinea. They are now endangered with no known conservation in place. Support them with a brand #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
