Natural Resources EP Citizen Science Program

NREP Citzen

Tomorrow April 13th is Citizen Science Day and Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula have launched a series of new online portals for reporting iconic Eyre Peninsula species, including malleefowl, goannas, koalas and echidnas. 

Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Officer Ben Smith said he’s amazed by the record number of everyday people now contributing to (NREP) Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula citizen science program.

Mr. Smith said, “Volunteers have been delivering outstanding work for the environment on the Eyre Peninsula such as tree planting, picking up rubbish and revegetating whole parks. Now citizen science adds a new deeper dimension to volunteering,”

Citizen science is identified as a priority action in the Natural Resources Management Board’s Regional Plan, helping to further understand the trend and condition of Eyre Peninsula’s natural resources.
