The Dampier Peninsula Gouldian Finch Project
For the past five years WWF has worked with Environs Kimberley, the Bardi Jawi and Nyul Nyul Rangers to survey a little-known population of Gouldian finches on the Dampier Peninsula. We’ve mapped their breeding habitat and we’ll work with researchers to undertake detailed biophysical surveys. Where breeding is evident, we’ll measure the features of those sites (hollow densities, fire history, tree density and size, grass communities and extent, topography, etc.) to allow us to better understand the finch population's habitat requirements and to also possibly identify other breeding sites.
