Currently, just over half of the world’s population live in urban places, but this is expected to increase to two thirds by the year 2050. One outcome of rapid urbanisation is a decline in biodiversity as urban landscapes become less natural. This project is looking at the relationship between urban development and biodiversity, something we need to understand to inform better planning and development. The main stages of the project are: •Site selection (2015-May 2016) COMPLETED: SEE MAP BELOW •First collection of bird data (May/June, 2016) COMPLETED •Recruitment of bird data collectors (July/August, 2016) •Second collection of bird data (September 2016) •Third collection of bird data (December 2016) •Fourth collection of bird data (March 2017) •Reporting of results to all stakeholders (November/December, 2017)
