REPORT 2019 |
This report shares the tremendous halfway results of our Caught on Camera citizen science project in Wombat State Forest.
Between 2012 and 2016 more than 200 volunteers from our NatureWatch program and Wombat Forestcare contributed over 2,500 hours to monitor wildlife in Wombat State Forest, ammasing highly valuable data on 13 native mammal species and 15 native bird species (including threatened species). We also recorded nine introduced mammal species and one introduced bird species.
The Victorian National Parks Association’s Caught on Camera project, part of our NatureWatch citizen science program, has built and strengthened positive and long-lasting links between the community, scientists and government.
