Have you ever wondered what wildlife gets up to on your property? The National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) is helping private landholders answer the question “Who’s living on my land?” using infrared cameras to survey their land for wildlife.

Citizen science update

Stephanie Clark and Margot Law, NPA Citizen Science Officers
NPA’s citizen science team has just got back from the 2018 Citizen Science Conference in Adelaide. NPA showcased its citizen science projects and won a highly commended award for our poster “Landholders ask: Who’s living on my land?” The conference filled us with enthusiasm and ideas for more citizen science activities and community based programs. Autumn is going to be a jam-packed season of citizen science activities – keep an eye on our Facebook and website for updates!

The Wild Wild Inner West

Margot Law, NPA Citizen Science Officer

Imagine a city where native animals flourish, helping to control feral vermin and even looking after your garden! Well, perhaps Sydney isn’t that far away from making this a reality. In recent years, we’ve seen native species like long-nosed bandicoots (Perameles nasuta), powerful owls (Ninox strenua) and native pollinators starting to reclaim their city.

500 landholders ask – ‘Who’s living on my land?’

Margot Law, Citizen Science Officer National Parks Association of NSW

NPA’s “Who’s living on my land?” is an innovative citizen science project that helps regional private landholders discover what species are on their property. We have trained more than 500 landholders, at 32 regional workshops over the last three and a half years, to survey their land for wildlife with infrared cameras, which we loan out to participants.
