Event description
Last summer's fires were hard on Australian forest owls. Come along to learn more about owls and how you can help the Powerful Owl.

About this Event

The BirdLife Powerful Owl project would like to invite you along from 12:30 to 15:30 for a presentation on Owl identification, biology, & ecology. The second half of the workshop also will allow you to sign up formally to the project as a citizen scientist, get permits, and be taught the tricks to help us monitor Powerful Owls in 2021.

Participants do not need to attended if you signed up previously, but you are welcome if you want a refresher. Also, you can watch videos of much of the content and sign up on-line if you prefer: see the Brisbane tab of our website Powerful Owl project website

Following the workshop there will be a break for dinner. We will not be providing dinner. From 18:00 to 20:00 (roughly), anyone is welcome to join us on a Powerful Owl walk. Please register for the walk separately so we know how many people are coming: RSVP for field trip here (required if you plan on attending)

We will go for an evening walk in groups of 20 or less, each group will look to walk a kilometre or two while recording any owls heard or seen, while also reviewing owl calls and the variety of things you will need to do when conducting field surveys on your own. These field sessions are optional but they will provide an opportunity to meet others you may be able to go owl watching with later. If you have not registered for the Powerful Owl project formally, you will need to sign this form when you come.

I will have copies you can sign on the day.

If you want to get signed up to the Powerful Owl project formally, we need you to sign this form, we need to you to either watch a video, or attend a Powerful Owl workshop, and we need you to fill out this form so we know where you want to work: Powerful Owl registration form part 2, where do you plan to work

The project aims to monitor Powerful Owls in southeast Queensland in order that we can identify how best to conserve them. There is, unfortunately a growing need to build this understanding, as forest owls had close to 30% of their habitat impacted by the recent bush-fires. 2020 Powerful Owl project report

With over 500 people already signed up to the project, getting involved provides a good opportunity to meet like-minded people, and to help us understand how to protect this elusive but threatened species.

The BirdLife Powerful Owl Project is operating in partnership with Birds Queensland, and is proudly supported by the Queensland Government - Queensland Citizen Science Grants, and the Logan City Council. The project is also, Proudly Supported by the Sunshine Coast Council’s Environment Levy, The Wettenhall EnvironmentTrust, the Australian Environment Foundation and Ipswich City Council.
