To coordinate everyone's surveys - so that we're all across Tasmania and not just a few patches - this year we have a brand new booking map, funded by 173 fabulous supporters via Pozible.
Even seasoned NatureTrackers will need to sign up afresh, since this is a new system. But it's very helpful to ensure we've got all the correct info for you, and we think you'll like the innovations. For example - it's important to check your square carefully to see what landowner permissions you might need, and to make sure that all your team can travel to it and within it safely. The new map has a land tenure layer which comes in very handy.
Any problems? Please don't hesitate to contact us (including details of your device and browser, e.g. 'Android tablet, Firefox') on firstname.lastname@example.org We've done a lot of testing... but if we've missed anything, it will help everyone if we can pick it up asap.
So - which is the square for you? All the guidelines are on the Prepare and Take Part pages. But here's a reminder that, if you're happy to explore anywhere, then surveys in more remote areas are always particularly valuable. Even a well-roaded square that's easy to get around but is far from any others booked really helps provide a more accurate picture of what's happening with our birds of prey across Tasmania. For those with the enthusiasm, skills and equipment for full bore Abel Mountain adventure, Ben Young has identified tracks to 32 of the Abels which cross survey squares - detailed below. Or perhaps you'd like to follow in the footsteps of last year's Team Melaleuca...
Wherever you choose, please read the info under the Prepare and Take Part pages before you book, and remember you and your team are responsible for each other's safety - make sure you really are fully prepared!
