2021 Wings on King Autumn Surveys - 22nd-25th April

together with

Orange bellied Parrot Blitz - 22nd April - 2nd May

in association with Friends of the OBP

 

Having not been able to hold weekend surveys in 2020 due to COVID we are very excited to once again be able to undertake a weekend survey weekend and invite everyone interested in helping us to take care of King Island by taking part in the Wings on King surveys and/or searching for the Orange-bellied Parrot when it migrates through.

Many of the survey sites are on private land - places you don't normally get to - but to ensure their and your safety you MUST register before taking part.
