Gang Gang research continues

Red Hill Regenerators have been closely engaged with an ongoing citizen science project to identify Gang gang breeding sites and behaviour. This work will lead to improved conservation management practice for this iconic species.

The ANU is seeking a PhD student to help guide research design and data analysis on further study into the resource requirements and movement patterns of Gang-gangs across the ACT region. A major knowledge gap, that has critical implications for land management of habitats in the ACT and nationally, is understanding how Gang-gang breeding behaviour varies across ecoregions and land uses; particularly between urban, rural, and reserved landscapes. More information about this project can be found here.

Results from earlier work will be published in the December 2020 edition of Canberra Bird Notes.
