The Atlas of Australian Birds

The Atlas of Australian Birds seeks to document the distribution and relative abundance of Australia's birds across the continent. It is one of BirdLife Australia's most important projects and is one of the few long-term, broad scale biodiversity monitoring programs available for Australia. The Atlas relies on an army of volunteer birdwatchers that we call Atlassers. Birdata is a partnership between BirdLife Australia and the Tony and Lisette Lewis Foundation's WildlifeLink program to bring the Atlas online. read more
