The Eagles

The eagles below are part of a research project by James Pay from UTAS. During the expedition in May 2018 we will be learning more about them as we criss-cross Tasmania in an effort to check in with them. We'll be adding more information to their profiles as we go. Please note: Approaching Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagles on the nest - even from many hundreds of metres away - can lead to breeding failure. James and his colleagues are doing formally permitted research into eagle conservation. This provided them with a rare opportunity to approach a small number of nests, using low risk procedures.
