Help save threatened species and preserve Australia's iconic wildlife!

As part of National Science Week, become a citizen scientist and assist researchers by looking for animals in wilderness photos taken by automated cameras around Australia.

Anyone can join in and you can do it all online.

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy has provided thousands of images as part of this project, giving the nation access to Tassie's incredibly diverse fauna. Results from this project will be included in the Atlas of Living Australia.
