B4C is involved in several citizen science projects. Contact us to be part of the fun! Please note that due to COVID-19, some programs are not taking on new participants or are reducing their activities. But it’s a great time to get involved with online citizen science projects!
Nest Box Monitoring
B4C was successful with a grant from the Queensland Citizen Science Grants program allowing us to do a great deal more for monitoring and understanding the needs for homes for a range of precious critters. And it also helps us to get YOU more involved.
Make sure you visit the Nest Box Monitoring project page on BioCollect and see our Nest Box Monitoring page.
The B4C Water Watch team conducts consistent water quality testing and monitoring at specific sites around Bulimba Creek Catchment.
Results are recorded so they can be compared and contrasted both throughout the year and over years. They always welcome new members to join them.
Invasive Species Control
Indian Myna Bird
The Common Myna (also known as Indian Myna) poses threats to our birds and arboreal mammals by aggressively taking or despoiling precious nest hollows where our native birds need to nest, take refuge and breed.
B4C runs a program which creates community awareness of Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis) impacts and encourages monitoring. Cages have been built by volunteers and participants trap Common Myna birds in their backyards. Read more >>
B4C is a member of the Cane Toad Challenge (CTC). This is a community engagement and citizen science program operated through UQ and led by Prof Rob Capon. Read more about the science in this article.
Contact us if you would like to borrow a Cane Toad tadpole trap kit. It includes an information sheet for you to complete and provide back to us.
