Threatened species citizen science projects

Participate in citizen science projects to help save species at risk of extinction.

Citizen scientists can play an important role in helping to save some of the 1000 or so threatened species in NSW. We’d also like to hear from potential partners and researchers interested in working with us on future projects.

By taking part in threatened species research, your work will support the Saving our Species conservation program.

What can you do?

You can survey koalas or count flying foxes.

You can also share videos of superb parrots, keep an eye on shorebirds or help monitor Bellingen rivers.

Depending on the project, you could go out into the field to take images on your smartphone or work from home to share your findings using your home computer.

You can take part whatever your age or background. All you need is an interest in saving threatened species.
