DECISION TIME! - which square to book?

22 May 2020 (+ recent regular updates)

If you haven’t already, please book the square you’re planning to survey as soon as possible! The booking map is designed to help us coordinate, so that together we choose for the best quality science.

Surveying any of the squares listed below will be especially valuable to the science. The list will be added to and updated regularly. Please note: statements about accessibility are quick estimates from the map - please look carefully for yourself and plan carefully! (Email through any errors?) Make sure it’s safe for your car and all your team to get to your chosen square, and that you have any necessary landowner permissions to get there.

BOOKING PROBLEMS? Web browser glitches sometimes occur. Booking works best on a computer. Please please contact us if it’s not working.

Why these particular squares?

TWO DAYS FREE? For the best science, surveys need to be as widely scattered across Tasmania as possible, sampling a wide range of environmental conditions, both good and bad for birds of prey - to give us an idea of overall population size. So - see if you can book a square as far from any other bookings as you can safely reach (especially NW and SW which are quite under-surveyed).

If you can do 2 days in a square far off from lots of others in SW / NW that isn’t an official square, please contact us as for these remote areas a little rule-bending may be feasible.

ONE DAY FREE? Between us, we also need to maximise the number of squares surveyed for more than one day. Annual, single-day surveys from 100 squares could only pick up a change in eagle population size of at least 70%; whereas annual two-day surveys from 100 squares would detect a change of 40%. Three-day surveys could pick up a change of 30% - or even, if 120 squares were surveyed, 25%. So - consider choosing a square that already has one booking.
