The Big City Birds Citizen Science App aims to learn about five specific bird species and their behavioral adaptations to living in the city. Their whereabouts, behaviors, communal roosts, and nest sites are of interest to researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Animal Behavior, the National Australian University, and The University of Sydney. The data collected will help scientists understand these species’ behavior, movement, reproduction, distribution, and habitat use in suburban areas.

The connections between water and geological underground are diverse and often complex. Using the SIBRA App, citizens can generate reliable data on these topics and thus contribute to a better understanding of these connections. At the Geological Survey of Austria, the data is being combined with other methods of measurement and used, inter alia, in developing models and scenarios that allow for assessing possible effects of extreme weather events, such as heavy precipitation, rapid snowmelt, flooding or draught.

Cane toads are relentless invaders. Native to Central America, cane toads were transported to sugar cane growing regions of the world early last century, including Australia, in the hope they would eat and eradicate beetles devastating sugar cane crops. The experiment failed spectacularly. Toads ignored beetles, and instead embarked on an epic global invasion.
