BowerBird is a social, web-based, biological sandpit – where everyone can come and play.
Add a sighting, see it be recognised, commented on and identified or that find that it contains unknown information about a species; and, then to see the sighting become part of a larger picture for a species or ecosystem and finally to have the sighting information integrated with national and international databases.
More formally, it is a socially networked, web-based, community, biodiversity workspace for Australia, although anyone is welcome to participate. We hope that it will be used by individuals, citizen scientists, amateur and professional science-based Organisations and Societies and Field Naturalists clubs. Its strength will be a single point of entry for biological communication and sharing.
We provide the workspace, the tools and the infrastructure to achieve these community and society based goals.
