Community Biodiversity Survey Manual

This manual is a user-friendly guide for people wanting to learn more about their local environment. It was developed by the NPWS and the National Parks Association of NSW. The manual helps individuals and community groups to plan and carry out a biodiversity survey.

The manual covers survey methodologies for plants, birds, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles and frogs. It is a step-by-step guide to:

  • selecting sites
  • doing research
  • planning and organising people and equipment
  • collecting and recording data.
