A Fly Neighbourly Advice was introduced on three sites within Phillip Island Nature Parks to protect environmental areas including a large Australian fur seal colony, sensitive seabird and shorebird breeding, feeding and roosting sites of national and international importance. The Phillip Island Fly Neighbourly Advice recommends a minimum flight height of 1500 feet within one nautical mile of the sensitive wildlife habitats. The FNA document is updated twice a year, and provides maps and details recommended for the sensitive sites.
