Forschen im Almtal

"Forschen im Almtal" is the app for a Citizen Science project of the University of Vienna in collaboration with the wildlife park in Grünau in Austria's Almtal. Visitors of the Wildlife park can become Citizen Scientists and observe three bird species (grey goose, raven and northern bald ibis) and help collect data on their behaviour in the Citizen Science App 'Forschen im Almtal'.

Learning more about bird behaviour

This project aims to monitor these three bird species, to find out when and where which animals can be found. Do they have preferences for specific places within the wildlife park, or do they prefer the company of fellow birds? The free-flying birds in the Cumberland Wildlife Park are individually marked (leg rings, wing markings), making recognizing individual birds easy for everybody!
