The principal aims of the NSW Bird Atlassers (NSWBA) are to determine the distribution of birds in NSW, monitor their status and promote better public understanding of birds.

An Atlas of the Birds of NSW & the ACT presents the results of long-term data collection and analysis as a baseline against which future changes and the effectiveness of conservation measures can be evaluated and affirms the need to continue the work of the NSWBA.

An Atlas of the Birds of NSW & the ACT is a comprehensive inventory and distributional analysis on the species of birds occurring within NSW, the ACT and the western Tasman Sea. For each species we summarize what is known about the occurrence, distribution, breeding biology, movements, history and current status.

The NSW Bird Atlassers is supported by a dedicated band of supporters concerned for the welfare of all birds.
