Monitoring and Management

As Australia’s national group of Malleefowl scientists, we offer a range of services that contribute to Malleefowl conservation. These include:


• Mound surveys and monitoring, including ground-truthing of LiDAR results
• Development and review of Malleefowl monitoring programs
• Development and review of Malleefowl management plans
• Training events for staff and volunteers
• Education events


Our organisation is backed by a highly-skilled team of scientists, with unmatched expertise in Malleefowl ecology, conservation and monitoring techniques, as well as decades of experience in conducting fieldwork across Australia.


Please get in touch with us to discuss your plans for Malleefowl monitoring or management.

Amazing clip from Michael (@outsidefourwallsphotography)!

Here is a bit of context he gave us alongside this clip:

“We volunteer for the Victorian Malleefowl Recovery Group to monitor Malleefowl mounds to gauge the breeding population of this incredible bird which is sadly a threatened species in Victoria. This occurs annually at the start of summer - today we were treated to the amazing sight of a bird maintaining the mound to regulate the temperature of the core which contains the incubating eggs. It was quite magical!”
