University of Tasmania Avian Club
The University of Tasmania Avian Club is an inclusive community of bird watching enthusiasts committed to the identification, observation, and appreciation of Tasmanian birds within their natural habitats. The club is affiliated with Tasmanian University Union (TUU), looking to promote awarness and foster interest amongst youth in the fantastic birds of Tasmania. We provide our members with therapeutic experience while conducting bird surveys and gaining observational education. We also offer membership to non-students as we aim to create a diverse community with people of different experiences and knowledge with similar interests.
We are committed to ethical bird watching practices which promote public awareness and respect of all native and introduced birds species of Tasmania, as well and the environments that they live in. The aim of our club is to share accurate and accessible information on the calls, characteristics, behaviours, location and habitats of bird species to further public education and recognition of our Tasmanian birds. While on trips, our trip leaders would also conduct bird survey using standard
surveying methods. All data gathered through the club will be recorded and made available to aid in further avian research and conservation projects.
We hope to share our avian passion with one another through organised bird watching trips, fundraisers, lectures and other events which everyone can participate in.
This information is provided for people to contact member groups about their community Landcare activities. Anyone wishing to distribute information generally to groups should contact Landcare Tasmania with their request.
