Finding finches – using eDNA to track endangered birds

27 July 2020

Our Hub research is user-driven.

We want our research to be useful and delivered to decision-makers and land managers, so we design our projects in collaboration with those who will end up using our research to make better decisions guided by science.

We’ve been asking our research users how they’ve been using our research, and we’re proud to present our first “Research for impact” video.

The Gouldian finch eDNA project is a collaboration between Charles Darwin University, NT Department of Environment and Natural Resources, University of Western Australia and Jawoyn Rangers, and is delivering real impact for those charged with monitoring these endangered birds.
