Where Where Wedgie?

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 Friday 25th, Saturday 26th &/or Sunday 27th May. On this website, we explain what the survey involves, and provide resources for you to gain or build on your bird identification skills.

This schools component of the project will be Andrew Hughes’ eleventh Expedition Class: Where Where Wedgie? Schools students will learn 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 booking into a workshop, or book your school into Expedition Class
