This is an exciting opportunity to help save many of our special birds and identify nature’s hotspots.
KBA Guardians come from all different backgrounds and have different skills. But all have one thing in common – a love of nature and a desire to help. This makes for a strong and inspiring national support network.
The project was established in 2016 and has grown each year. The results that come from each area and Guardian provide us with important information. We can compare the results from year to year, and this information helps us get onto problems before they become insurmountable. It also shows us where to target our conservation work.
KBA Guardians don’t need to be bird experts – in fact, we encourage anyone with an interest in the environment to bring their skills to become a KBA Guardian. We need you!
The main task of KBA Guardian is to carry out Health-checks each Easter, providing a valuable snapshot of the threats and conservation actions in the KBA.
BirdLife Australia’s KBA program is lucky to have many dedicated KBA Guardians. Without them, we could not collect data on birds and threats to nature in Key Biodiversity Areas. These local experts contribute to actively protecting nature and help save our birds.
To do this role, you need:
We greatly encourage anyone with an interest in protecting nature and birds to bring diverse skills to the KBA Guardian Program.
Most Australians live just a stone’s throw away from a KBA! Discover one near you.
