 Western Banders Association - 2014

The Western Banders Association was formed in February 1995. At that time it was recognised that there was a need for a system of communication between Western Australian bird banders. No other avenue existed to inform them of current banding projects or opportunities to take part in constructive and instructive local activity.

Many projects currently operating in the West are supported co-operatively by experienced and qualified banders, trainees, volunteers and friends. Senior banders are contributing their knowledge and equipment to support projects supervised by other researchers, especially those set up and operated by recently qualified banders. Some projects are designed to provide trainee banders with experience in different habitats and in handling species that they may not encounter while working with their nominated supervisor.

Members of the Western Banders Association receive a Newsletter, the Western Banders News, which is published about every 8 weeks, with news of what is happening in the West. Occasionally there are reports on members' activities interstate or abroad.

Local gatherings are organised to provide mutual support for current banding projects and their supervising banders; to offer the best possible training for new banders; to encourage greater technical skills and analytical effort among banders; and to hold workshops and seminars in support of all the above aims.

Membership subscription is AU$10 a year within Australia and AU$15 for overseas members and falls due in January each year. Payments and correspondence can be sent to Mr Greg Marston, Treasurer, 'Waldja', 35 Crossman Road, Boddington WA 6390. I hope that you will join us in supporting a common interest.
