Connecting Birds and People

CITIZEN SCIENTISTS

technical text 

Since 2006, the organization's scientists began adoption of community based long-term data collection on indicator bird species. The initiative started with the monitoring of White Storks and later continued through other easy identifiable sensitive species, which could serve for tracking conditions of the various ecosystems: forests, grasslands, and wetlands.  

Now the citizen-scientists are becoming involved in many duties of the organization, such as international counts of the bird communities or particular species, bird ringing sessions, monitoring of game bird species, and others. Those people become more and more professional from year to year, and are able to become involved in rather complex monitoring activities, e.g. the bird monitoring in Important Bird Areas. 

Our longest and largest dataset allows our organization to track the trends of particular bird species and entire ecosystems and to support policy levels of decision making.
