BirdWatch Ireland promotes data collection
Ireland is one of the countries covered by the EBP project where data collection is still quite low. For this reason, and in the context of the LIFE EBP Action A10, BirdWatch Ireland undertook a communication campaign aimed at increasing the submission of bird observations to BirdTrack.
One of the actions involved the publication of one article about the BirdTrack portal and the EBP in the December 2018 edition of E-Wings, the monthly e-magazine circular of BirdWatch Ireland which is sent to 25,777 of its members and supporters. The article promoted the project and encouraged more volunteer uptake.
The BirdTrack article appearing in the 2019 spring issue of Wings Magazine
- Kildare Branch (12th April 2018)
- Meath Branch (29th May 2018)
- Tolka Branch (21st November 2018)
Those attending were encouraged to use BirdTrack and, particularly, its mobile app.
