On November 28th we will conduct a large-scale Citizen Science project—THE GREAT KOALA COUNT. We hope you can participate. You can do it with family or friends, as a community group or as a school.
Why have a koala count? Koalas populations are now considered Vulnerable in most of their natural range. However, in South Australia koala numbers are predicted to be high. Counting koalas is difficult because they occur in towns, gardens, parks, along roads, on farms and in schoolyards. There are simply not enough scientists to count them. So we need your help – to be a Citizen Scientist and help count them, and let us know what you think about them.
Use this app to take a photo and record what you see, then share your data with the world!
