Become a ‘Wildlife Spotter’ citizen scientist and assist researchers by looking for animals in wilderness photos taken by automated cameras around Australia. Anyone can join and you can do it all online!!
Camera traps are used by researchers as a powerful tool for studying wildlife: the images captured by these motion-triggered cameras provide deep insights into animal populations that are otherwise difficult, or impossible to gain. Through the Wildlife Spotter platform, researchers are getting assistance from citizen scientists to process the millions of images that camera traps generate.
Not only do the researchers benefit from Wildlife Spotter but citizen scientists have the opportunity to learn useful animal identification skills while contributing directly to scientific research.
