Where? Where? Wedgie 2019!
We are back again with our citizen science project - working towards this year's giant eagle survey in May 2019, Where? Where? Wedgie! Where are the wedge-tailed eagles in Tasmania and how many are there? Students and teachers - and families and communities - can get involved, as we learn about these winged warriors of the sky.
- Learn how to find eagles and other birds, and explore their habits and habitats, through 8 brand new videos for 2019, photos and discussion boards.
- Connecting students online and outside with scientists.
- Free teaching resources aligned to Australian Curriculum: Science and across other curriculum areas (see the school curriculum outlines below).
- More inspiration and information in 29 video and photo reports from last year's Where? Where? Wedgie! expedition.
- Connected to a major new citizen science project where observation data (getting outside) contributes to a real investigation into the population of the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle.
The 2019 teaching resources are now ready to view, with videos being uploaded over the coming weeks of exploring towards the big eagle survey. The introduction page and first few videos are up now - within the 'survey preparation reports' and embedded in the course. The rest will be appearing over the coming 1-2 weeks - before the survey starts!
Schools can be part of the action in May. Follow along here and explore the NatureTrackers citizen science website to get involved.
