Terrestrial Birds & Nest Boxes resources
NRM Education takes delight in announcing the release of our latest Engaging with Nature teacher resource packs.
We now have a resource to assist you in undertaking habitat assessments of your school/site/local area through the use of birds and another to investigate the presence/absence of hollows and how to increase habitat value for birds and other wildlife through the construction and placement of nest boxes.
How healthy is the biodiversity in your school grounds and in your local area? By undertaking a bird survey, the presence (or absence) of different types of birds and the habitats they occur in provides a simple way of estimating the health of biodiversity in your area.
Understanding the importance of hollows as shelter, how their availability has changed in the last 175 years, impacts on native wildlife and what may be done to enhance hollow dependant fauna will all be considered in this resource.
