As you can see this malleefowl nest has been visited by several echidnas. Understanding the visitation of echidnas and other animals is really important and that’s where you, our amazing citizen scientists, come in. Transcribing how many echidnas, malleefowl and other animals visit the nest is not only very valuable to scientists and land managers, it’s a really fascinating task.
Watch closely as you're transcribing images, there is some surprising behaviour at this nest. You may even be inspired to research more about what you observe. Thanks for helping with this important work.
