Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a scientist?
Well, here is your chance.
We are launching a ‘citizen science’ project, just for fun (since it is almost summer) and because we want to find out whether some rumours we have been hearing about Tui are true or not. We would like New Zealanders of all ages to become citizen scientists this summer and help us collect the data. All you have to do is flick us an email or add a comment on this website when you spot a Tui as you are enjoying the warm summer outdoors. We will analyse the data and tell you all about it at the end of the summer.
The data will be made public, for anyone to use.
So, to become a scientist, all you will need is a pencil and a notepad. There is only one rule: have fun!
