Woehler, E and Prahalad, V, Bird app enabling Tasmanians to become citizen scientists, The World Today, ABC Radio National, Australia, 29 January 2016 (2016) [Media Interview]
A new bird watching app is allowing Tasmanians to use their mobile phones and computers to take part in some scientific research of their own.
The University of Tasmania has created the Saltmarsh app so the public can record what kinds of birds are living in local wetlands.
The information recorded by the citizen scientists will be sent to the university, giving researchers a better idea of how birds are using the wetlands.
