CIP’s Hawk-Owl Nest Box Trial

By Phosphate Resources in Environment

Swinging on a rope 20 metres up in a rainforest tree on Christmas Island isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but all in a day’s work for environmental consultants who were on Island in December to evaluate CIP’s nest box trial.

There were some exciting finds but first a bit of background. In 2017, CIP initiated a project to evaluate the potential conservation value of artificial nest-boxes on Christmas Island. The project is funded by PRL and is coordinated by Perth-based environmental consultants, Range to Reef Environmental (R2R), together with the Christmas Island District High School.
