The BirdLife Powerful Owl project would like to invite you along for an hour to learn about Owls, their identification, biology, & ecology. For those who would like to become volunteer citizen scientists, monitoring Queensland’s Powerful Owls, we invite you to stay on for the second hour to get more details on the project, and to go over some of the requirements and training required to monitor Powerful Owls. Participants are welcome to just come for the first hour if you attended an introductory workshop previously or are already familiar with owls. There will be a break between sessions where people can come and go.
The Powerful Owl project aims to monitor Powerful Owls in southeast Queensland and is modelled after the highly successful Powerful Owl project in Sydney http://birdlife.org.au/projects/powerful-owl-project The Powerful Owl project has proven to be one which effectively monitors this threatened species and delivers concrete management recommendations to help protect owls. Large numbers of the public have been educated on Powerful Owl ecology and active citizen scientists contribute monitoring data. Through data analysis we expect to be able to flag any concerns regarding local Powerful Owls.
