ANSTO Feather Map Citizen Science Project

Wetlands are habitats that are critical for Australia’s waterbirds however they are under threat from reduced river flows and flooding, drought, climate change and land use changes. Help turn the tide by simply collecting wetland bird feathers you find on the ground or in the water from inland wetlands across Australia.

Calling all citizen scientists! Get involved with ANSTO and UNSW's Feathermap of Australia project, collect feathers from waterbird habitats, send them in for for analysis and help protect Australia's wetlands.
