A new seabird study is crowdsourcing to raise funds for the purchase of time-lapse cameras to monitor tropical tern breeding and feeding ecology on remote islands off Northern Australia.
The project will measure nest attendance, laying/hatching success, and gull predation over 2 years at Crested and Bridled Tern colonies. The project will also develop a protocol for camera deployment and image processing that can be managed by the local ranger group for long term monitoring of seabirds on Cobourg Peninsula - the first wetland site in the world listed under the RAMSAR convention way back in 1974.
Donations or promotion would be fantastic as we attempt to reach our target of AU$5,200. Photos, videos and a blog on the project will be provided to donors.
