Every three months, we hold citizen science survey camps in the forests of far East Gippsland. Camps are open to all memebers of the public, regardless of experience.
Survey camps focus on threatened species surveying and conservation in the forests of East Gippsland. Participants learn about threats to species, ecology, survey techniques, data collection and collation. The camps collect data on threatened species and ecological values. Data is collated into scientific reports. Reports are presented to the Department of Environment to ensure endangered species habitat is given the legal protections afforded to it.
The camps empower the community to act protect threatened species and ecological values in the face of inadequate regulation of the logging industry.
