Gippsland Pelicans: Citizen Science
An educative presentation by Tour Guide Skipper Pete about Gippsland Pelicans. Skipper Pete has been assisting Birdlife Australia and DEECA with regular monitoring of Pelicans over the last 5 years.
The one hour discussion will focus on current research and citizen science projects including the use of numbered red bands on a Pelican’s leg.
Participants can purchase drinks or snacks from The Boat Shed Cafe before or during the event.
If the weather is suitable, Skipper Pete will conduct a short walk to a nearby boat ramp to view Pelicans.
This event is part of the 2023 East Gippsland Winter Festival, running from 9 June - 9 July. For the full festival program, please visit: https://egwinterfest.com.au/
