There is a need to find out more about the wildlife we share our homes with. By collating data, we can make science-based decisions to properly conserve and manage the diverse animals that visit and live in the Shire.
The information you provided will be current and can be collected on a large scale, including both public and private land. It will provide a great range and depth of data for analysis and research.
This will be a useful resource in decision-making and planning of works in many areas of Council as the data can measure the health of natural ecosystems by detecting changes in fauna numbers and species type.
Important sightings that can be verified will be passed on to the NSW BioNet. BioNet is a State wide portal for accessing information about plants and animals in NSW.
