Who’s Living on My Land Report

Margot Law, NPA Citizen Science Officer

“Who’s living on my land?” is a National Parks Association of NSW citizen science project designed to help regional private landholders discover what species are on their property. NPA was funded by South East Local Land Services (SELLS) to run 20 “Who’s living on my land?” workshops across their region to train 300 private landholders in camera trapping, collaborating with local environmental projects and landcare groups.

“Who’s living on my land?” Spring 2018

Margot Law, Citizen Science Officer
NPA has helped over 400 private landholders from South East NSW answer the question “Who’s living on my land?” using infrared cameras to survey their land for wildlife. We have analysed approximately half a million photographs of native and pest species found on private land and uploaded the records to public databases; filling important knowledge gaps as most of NSW species records come from public land.

Dragons of Sydney

The ‘Dragons of Sydney’ project conducted a Sydney-wide Water Dragon backyard survey. This survey aimed to uncover the features of people’s backyards that led to the presence or absence of water dragons; things like water features, vegetation, presence of pets, and personal uses of backyard space.

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!
