Help enter bird records
We are seeking volunteers to help with two data entry projects. Data entry can be done at the BirdLife office in Carlton Melbourne, or from the comfort of your own home anywhere in Australia.
The first project involves entering daily bird records collected by one individual in the Alice Springs area for over 17 years. We are looking for volunteers who can assist with data entry, so that this incomparable dataset can be analysed and incorporated into national and state databases.
The second initiative relates to the BirdLife Australia Atlas project. While the BirdLife Australia Atlas Project has transitioned into an online database complete with app, not all of the observers have moved with the times and some are still completing their surveys on paper forms. While we’re happy to receive valuable data from all contributors, it does create an extra step for us, to get those surveys into the database. We’re looking for volunteers who can assist with entering these forms into Birdata. Data entry can be done at the BirdLife office in Carlton Melbourne, or data can be forwarded to you for entering at home.
For more information and to volunteer please email the Threatened Bird Network at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Andrew Silcocks on 03 9347 0757.
