Where? Where? Wedgie!
We are back again with our citizen science project - working towards this year's giant eagle survey in May 2023, Where? Where? Wedgie! Where will we see wedge-tailed eagles in Tasmania this year? Are they increasing, or declining in number? Students and teachers - and families and communities - can get involved. Let's start learning about these winged warriors of the sky...
The schools activities are available from the start of May. The best timing to run these is probably 15-25 May - the 2 weeks between this year's surveys, on 12-14 & 26-28 May. By then, you'll be able to check out this year's progress on the Results Map (link below; prior to 12 May this will show the results for 2022). But you can jump into the other resources on this website any time you like!
- Discover Tasmania's eagles and other birds, and explore their habits and habitats, through 9 fun & fascinating daily videos.
- Get into the science, art and culture of eagles and other birds of prey through brand new, free online teaching resources aligned to Australian Curriculum: Science, HASS, Art and other curriculum areas. Each day, check out the video and the link to the day's materials.
- Connect students with the scientists via the webinars - book soon!
- Join many other Tasmanians in signing up today for the Where? Where? Wedgie! surveys on any or all of on 12-14 & 26-28 May. Your observation data (getting outside) contributes to a rigorously designed, long term, real investigation into the populations of eagles and other birds of prey in Tasmania.
- Find more inspiration and information in 29 video and photo reports from the huge, first Where? Where? Wedgie! expedition in 2018.
Sign up to Expedition Class and/or NatureTrackers to receive further updates: be the first to check out the updated teaching resources, with extra exciting new dimensions! You might also like to let your students' families know about the project. A practice survey with your class on school grounds may inspire some students to head on out with their families over one of the survey weekends, to contribute to the science.
