Help us find out how many wedge-tailed eagles there are in Tasmania!
This NatureTrackers citizen science project invites all Tasmanians to help us monitor Tasmania’s diurnal birds of prey, with a focus on wedge-tailed eagles, but also covering white cockatoos and corellas.
The last formal estimates of wedge-tailed eagle population size – at fewer than 1000 birds – were many years ago, and based on inference from quite limited information. Since then, there have been lots of efforts to reduce the impact of human activities on these birds, but we don’t know if they’re working.
All you need to do is register online at https://naturetrackers.com.au/index.php, choose your survey site on our interactive map and spend a day out with your eyes to the sky on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th &/or Sunday 27th May.
This is real science so you please check out our website, where we explain what the survey involves, and provide resources for you to gain or build on your bird identification skills.
Event audience: Everyone
