The national malleefowl recovery team would like to invite volunteers to join its citizen science project to monitor the birds’ population in the region.
Monitoring malleefowl is an important tool in understanding the vulnerable species and an essential way to discover long-term trends of the population’s numbers over time.
Project officer Liz Kington said the team had developed a system that allowed volunteers to use modern technology.
“At the training, we will show you how to use the equipment and then travel to a site where we will visit several mounds and go through the monitoring methodology,” she said.
Training will start on Saturday, November 10, at Yongergnow Malleefowl Centre in Ongerup.
