CSIRO O&A Wildlife Observations Overview

Wildlife observations from voyages have been collected over many earlier voyages as mentioned in the Biological survey overview metadata records . Most of those records have not been digitised or lodged with the Data Centre. More recently there have been surveys from the RV Investigator where the observations have been logged in on-line database. Observations cover birds, seals, cetaceans and ad-hoc observations of turtles and sea snakes. The main contemporary project looking at seabirds is Spatial and temporal variability in the distribution and abundance of seabirds by Principal Investigator Dr. Eric Woehler. Data from this project is progressively being published on a voyage by voyage basis to the Ocean Biodiversity Information System (OBIS), Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). Details of the publishing mechanism, standards used and publishing site are on the OBIS Australia website
