Dear PNHA Members and Friends,
The White Ibis Survey is on again.
The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is conducting its annual White Ibis survey to get a better understanding of the distribution and abundance of this bird in NSW.
This year we are requesting participation from across Australia.
The survey has been running since 2003 and the information collected has assisted considerably with our knowledge of these distinctive birds. Increasingly, Ibis are moving into our urban environments bringing them into conflict with humans e.g. affecting aircraft safety, water quality and biodiversity.
To participate simply report the number of Ibis you see via the below website. Reports within a week of the 20th are accepted. Additional information such as breeding, the number of nests or wingtags (pictured above) is greatly appreciated.
