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.

Temperature check! At 21 seconds you can see one of the malleefowl putting it’s beak in the sand, this is to check the temperature. In an amazing feat, the pair will keep the soil at the same temperature by using their temperature sensitive beaks and adding/removing sand accordingly. Another amazing malleefowl fact!
