Coastal Bird Atlas
The Coastal Bird Atlas database includes records for seabirds, migratory shorebirds and other bird species that occur on Queensland islands and coastal areas. These records date back as far as 1819. The atlas includes data from birds that have been captured, monitoring data for seabird colonies and observational data.
The data predominantly relates to the Great Barrier Reef islands, cays and reefs and the coastal waters, but data is also present from the Gulf of Carpentaria.
The incorporation of the atlas into the Department of Environment and Science's wildlife database (WildNet) and the Wetland Information Capture (WIC) data upload system was jointly funded by the Queensland Wetlands Program and the Fitzroy Basin Association.
