About the report
This year's The state of Australia's birds (SOAB) is an overview of the status of Australia's birds, revisiting the long-term monitoring studies presented in the SOAB 2003, plus a few a more. Trends in bird populations are mixed, but more species are in decline than in 2003. The encouraging news is that where active management is undertaken success in improving the state of bird populations is more prevalent than failure.
