State of NZ Garden Birds 2019 | Reports

Birds act as 'backyard barometers' - telling us about the health of the environment we live in. They are signalling significant changes in our environment over the last 10- and 5-year periods. We should be listening.

Using cutting-edge techniques, Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research has distilled a substantial information base - bird counts gathered by New Zealanders from over 35,000 garden surveys since 2009 - into simple but powerful metrics.

Explore how bird counts have changed nationally and in your region since 2009.
