The Future is Local - Connect
June brings your chance to participate in NZs largest citizen science project; the NZ Garden Bird Survey.
It requires 1 hour of your time to be in your garden (on in a cosy indoor spot where you can see your garden), during which you record the highest number of birds you see for each bird species during that time.
The data is used to see how populations of our native and introduced birds are doing, and it is especially important for this data to come form all over the country and not just the main centres.
All of the data entry can be done online, and the garden bird site also includes identification guides, activities, resources and past data.
I've been a data entry volunteer for the project for 6 years and am happy to answer any questions :)
