Saving our Species with DigiVol

Help us process images from motion sensor cameras for science.

Spotted-tailed Quoll, Barren Grounds, Budderoo Quollidor remote monitoring stationsAll projects featured focus on threatened species conservation for the Saving our Species program.

We are looking for volunteers to help us sort through a vast number of images and identify animals so we can process them faster. For this project, citizen scientists will use DigiVol, an online tool developed by the Australian Museum and the Atlas of Living Australia.

DigiVol has been primarily used for unlocking scientific data from the biodiversity collections of institutions in Australia and around the world. By helping us capture this valuable information, citizen scientists will be helping scientists understand changes in species and help us manage our precious biodiversity in national parks and reserves.

How do I sign up?
