Bird banding on Kangaroo Island

As part of our Science Engagement Grant, this weekend we will be running a number of bird banding sessions on Kangaroo Island.

This grant program is part of a larger initiative designed to raise community awareness of science, innovation and science-related careers.

On Friday, May 14, students from Kangaroo Island Community Education’s Kingscote Campus will attend a bird banding session with Bio·R director Dr David Paton AM, along with some other members of the Bio·R team.

The following day (Saturday, May 15), we will be running multiple bird banding sessions which are open to the community. However, registrations are essential as sessions are capped at 15 people.

This is a great opportunity for the local community to get involved in a fantastic research program.

The Inspiring South Australia program is supported by the Australian Government, the Government of South
Australia, the University of Adelaide, the University of South Australia, Flinders University and the
South Australian Museum.
