Canberra Nature Map
The Canberra Nature Map project allows you to report your rare plant and animal sightings as well as any of the many treasures in and around the ACT.
Koala Count 2015
2015 National Koala Count citizen science survey.
Atlas of Life in the Coastal Wilderness
Canberra Nature Map (CNM) has transformed the way that wildlife information is collected, reported and accessed across the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). In doing so it has significantly increased our understanding of wildlife distribution and abundance and has informed and changed daily land management practice. It is having a revolutionary impact in terms of our understanding and management actions. I strongly endorse the adoption of the programming tools and flexibility that has driven CNM to other regions, wildlife of interest or citizen science projects.

We'd like to give a big-shout out to our software developers NatureMapr, who have just received the 2015 ACT Landcare People’s Choice Award. Aaron Clausen and his team put in a massive effort to get our new streamlined and slick Koala Count website and app up and running. We've been blown away by their commitment and tireless efforts. We highly recommend NatureMapr as a platform for any other budding citizen science projects out there.

We receive the following questions fairly often. If there's anything else we can assist with, please Contact Us.
|Who owns my data?||You do. NatureMapr users and contributors always retain ownership of their own data at all times. The data is simply stored in our platform securely as well as being backed up daily (in Australia). We take the protection of your information extremely seriously and never make your information available to any third parties unless you've explicitly agreed to do so (such as a Government custodian or the CSIRO for example).|
|Where is the information hosted?||All NatureMapr services are hosted securely within Australia (Sydney with a failover instance in Melbourne) on enterprise grade cloud infrastructure that carries an Australian Government IRAP certification.|
|Who owns NatureMapr?||NatureMapr is a private organisation that owns and operates the NatureMapr platform as a service provider to anyone that wishes to setup their own portal. Think of us simply as a service provider, however we are also experienced at partnering with government and other organisations to deliver the most effective solution.|
|I need something unique!||No problem, talk to us! We specialise in delivering unique and/or custom solutions to meet the exact needs of your project or organisation. Special features can also be added to the NatureMapr platform upon request.|
