Survey/Project Name: Raptor Survey - Kangaroo Island
Abstract: The primary objectives of the Kangaroo Island raptor survey are to: - document the current locations of all White-bellied Sea-Eagle (WBSE) nests; - note whether WBSE nests are active or inactive; and - record which WBSE territories are currently occupied.

Textual description of nest location including: a. Situation (e.g. ledge, tree, clifftop) b. Height above ground c. Aspect (e.g. north-facing); 4. Notes regarding any obvious signs of human activity, disturbance or structures such as clearance events or bushfires; 5. Photograph of nest location and surrounding habitat.
