CSIRO - A focus on colonial-nesting waterbirds


Waterbird breeding and movements: Knowledge for water managers

Our Australian waterbird populations depend on suitable feeding and nesting habitats coupled with flood events. Protecting and maintaining suitable feeding and nesting habitats both between and during flood events is essential to maximise waterbird recruitment, maintain populations, and conserve biodiversity. This requires careful management of both vegetation and water regimes. The CSIRO is focusing its research on waterbird species which breed and nest in colonies within our wetlands.

Feather Map

The University of NSW is conducting an exciting project to map the movement of waterbird species through their feather analysis. Become a citizen scientist today by collecting wetland bird feathers you find on the ground or in the water and help our researchers create the first ever Feather Map of Australia.

Boyanga South photography

Phillip and Terry Fleming are sheep and cattle producers on the Gingham Channel, 75kms NW of Moree.
Terry uses their Boyanga South Facebook page to showcase the flora, fauna and habitat, in the wetlands and woodlands on, and around their property, “Boyanga South”.

They realized how little they knew about the birds, in particular, that came in and out of their environment as the seasons changed and photography was a way to learn as well as show others, or simply share with fellow enthusiasts.
