2024 Waterhole Count Interest

Please enable JavaScript in your browser to complete this form.

This year’s Black-throated Finch (BTF) waterhole count will be held on Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd of October 2023 at various locations in the Townsville region.

Once again, the Black-throated Finch Recovery Team is looking for volunteers for these two days to watch waterholes and count finches coming in to drink. The count covers a 3-hour period of each morning (6-9am).

The BTF waterhole count is a great opportunity for new volunteer observers to support the BTF recovery programme and hopefully to see the endangered BTF at close quarters. If you are interested in joining one of the teams for the waterhole count, then please register your interest below.
