"Forschen im Almtal" is a Citizen Science project of the University of Vienna in cooperation with the Cumberland Game Park in Grünau im Almtal. Its aim is to actively involve the visitors of the game park in the research activities of the Core Facility Konrad Lorenz Research Station for Behaviour and Cognition (Austria). Everybody is welcome to join in!

Join the new NestCams project! You can help us by watching video clips of greylag geese and northern bald ibises on their nests and classifying, what kind of behaviour they show. The project runs on the platform Zooniverse and you can access it directly here: go to NestCams.
