Great Western Woodlands Surveys

  • Great Western Woodlands Western Australia (map)

The Great Western Woodlands bird surveys include nine survey areas located within the Great Western Woodlands of Western Australia. Each survey area has 20 to 30 survey sites which are surveyed by volunteers in Spring and Autumn every year.

We are planning to do surveys in April and May and need volunteer birders and at least two 4 x 4 vehicles for each survey (though more vehicles would be great).

Survey dates include:

Monday April 23 – 29 Anzac Day Campout to Cave Hill followed by Jilbadji.

Monday May 14 – 20 Fraser Range followed by Dundas.

We are looking for birders comfortable with identifying the birds of this area and who have the appropriate vehicles plus all equipment necessary to be completely self-sufficient camping in the outback, including water. Locations are often remote.

Opportunistic surveys by individuals are also very welcome and surveys at other times of the year contribute significantly to our knowledge of how birds use the Great Western Woodlands.
