FROM TIME TO TIME, Training will be offered to help our   ‘citizen scientists’ become more proficient in observing and recording the presence of wildlife in our area.

As a member of our Citizen Scientist team, you will learn to:

• develop keen observation skills;

• achieve accuracy in recording (notes, photography, artwork, audio samples);

• use our online database;

• recognise families and species of local flora and fauna;

• access information on Australian plant and animal life already on record;

• apply acceptable scientific protocols carrying out species surveys;

• adopt a ‘leave no trace’ approach to being in the bush.
