Key Biodiversity Area Easter Health-check
The Easter Health-checks for our Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) are approaching! KBAs are the places that matter most to wildlife in Australia. BirdLife Australia aims to take an annual snapshot of the threats and conservation actions through our KBA Easter Health-check. The Health-check is conducted by a registered KBA ‘Guardian’, who is assigned to a specific KBA. The role of the Guardian is open to anyone with environmental knowledge and an interest in conservation.
Volunteers are needed for the upcoming Easter Health-check, especially for KBAs in South Australia and the NT. The main task during the Easter Health-check is to assess the health of a KBA or part of it using a standardised form to assess monitoring, threats and conservation work. You can see some past surveys here. It only takes a few hours to fill out. More information here.
If you want to know more about KBAs near you in need of a Guardian, or help out with the Easter Health-check get in touch with the National KBA Program Coordinator Dr Golo Maurer firstname.lastname@example.org
