Citizen science is accessible to all members of the community and in this context is an integral part of a community's understanding and responsibility for the local biodiversity.
Date: Friday 24 November 2023
Venue: NatureArt Lab Studio, M16 Artspace, 21 Blaxland Crescent, Griffith, Canberra
This session will explore NatureMapr; a powerful platform in the conservation space which harnesses collective community efforts with technology. The subsequent, quality data is used by councils, national and federal government, to inform decision-making, support environmental advocacy, raise awareness and to maintain healthy natural environments.
We will be providing a step-by-step guide on how to record a sighting, where this data goes, and the measures taken to ensure its security, along with all the other informative features the platform has to offer. The opportunity to make a difference in your community is at your fingertips! Join us on Friday 24th of November at 13:30 and become part of the NatureMapr community!
