The first NatureTrackers project is to monitor Tasmania’s diurnal birds of prey, with a focus on wedge-tailed eagles, but also covering white cockatoos and corellas.
Could there be fewer than 1000 Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles in the world? Help find out.
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.
We’re inviting as many people as possible across Tasmania to join us in finding out, by spending a day out with your eyes to the sky. On this website, we explain what the survey involves, and provide resources for you to gain or build on your bird identification skills.
The first survey, which took place in May 2018, involved a substantial schools component which was Andrew Hughes’ eleventh Expedition Class: Where Where Wedgie? Schools students learnt about eagle and other birds of prey, and about monitoring threatened species.
You can get involved by signing up here! And get to meet everyone involved by attending one of the Expos at the end of September - more details coming soon.
