          Citizen Science

          Take your interest in birds and nature to the next level by joining our citizen science community. Volunteer bird watchers help us understand how birds are faring across Australia.

          Interested in birds and nature? Why not join our citizen science community?

          We need volunteers to take part in bird monitoring surveys and conservation activities across Australia.

          You get to watch birds and enjoy the outdoors, and the information you record helps us develop a better understanding of Australia's birds and their habitats.

          For instance, data collected by our Atlas project volunteers over the past 15 years has been used to produce Australia’s first-ever terrestrial bird population indices. These provide a quantitative measure of the how birds are faring across the country.

          ?“Once you start looking closely at birds, you get hooked! At a personal level, monitoring helps grows my understanding about the birds at specific sites. At a big-picture level, I enjoy contributing to better knowledge about Australian native birds and how to look after them.”

          Alan Stuart, from Newcastle NSW, has volunteered for our Atlas monitoring project for 16 years

          • You simply go bird watching, record your location and the birds you see, and submit your observations on our collection forms
          • Get started with Atlas now, or come along to one of our workshops to find out more


          Get out and about

          • If you prefer more hands-on conservation volunteering, our Threatened Bird Network runs habitat restoration days in various locations across Australia.
          • Volunteers can also participate in field trips and conduct surveys to study bird populations and movements.

          Connect with your local community

          • ?You could be a volunteer warden at a Hooded Plover nesting beach, man a stall at a festival, or help teach children about the plight of our birds.

          Help out in the office

          • Surveys are just the first the step in recording and understanding bird population trends. We also need volunteers to help enter data, model data in GIS software, and perform other important engagement tasks such as editing newsletters and designing posters.
