For the love of birds and biodiversity

The City of Melbourne recently hosted a citizen-science program titled ‘HollowBlitz’, which examined what birds were nesting in tree hollows in our municipality!

It took place over four nights in October and November 2017 at five parks in the city: Carlton Gardens, Fawkner Park, Fitzroy Gardens, Royal Park and the Stock Route in Kensington.

The data collected is currently being analysed and will help us better understand and protect nature in the urban environment.

For more information on HollowBlitz, visit Biodiversity research and monitoring.


Over 200 people recently attended the HollowBlitz events.
