About the report
The State of Australia’s Birds 2003 report is an overview of the status of Australia’s birds, the main threats they face and the conservation actions taken. The report and much of the data in it were collected and largely funded by volunteers. This is an extraordinary expression of concern for Australia’s birds and their habitats. Without such commitment, how are we to understand the state of our birds: which species and bird communities are truly in trouble, where to focus conservation efforts, whether conservation interventions are working?
