Bird Watching

Recent STCRC research suggests that while seemingly low impact, bird watching has been shown to negatively impact on wildlife populations.Read more

Recent STCRC research suggests that:

  • While seemingly low impact, bird watching has been shown to negatively impact on wildlife populations;
  • The mean number of species in undisturbed sites was significantly greater than in semi disturbed and disturbed sites in both rainforest and eucalypt areas;
  • Compared to those living in completely undisturbed locations, birds living in areas of higher disturbance were characterised by:
      • Lower species richness;
      • Lower numbers of individuals; and
      • Greater disturbance distances.
  • Some species appear unaffected by disturbance levels.
  • Long-term studies of the impacts of bird watching on bird reproductive and foraging ecology is required.
