WildTracker in West Tamar

Be part of WildTracker - an exciting citizen science project that will identify wildlife hotspots!

As a landholder, you can improve your knowledge about wildlife throughout the West Tamar and help protect our amazing native animals from feral species like cats and deer.

We are running half-day workshops for landholders – an opportunity to learn some wildlife survey skills and meet other people interested in wildlife management.

You can be involved as a landholder by:

  • Attending the field day to learn about how to monitor wildlife on your property
  • Installing cameras on your property
  • Managing habitat for wildlife - land management support is available through this program.

Automatic cameras have revolutionised the way we look for wildlife. The cameras help us find all sorts of animals, including rare and threatened species like bandicoots, devils, bettongs and quolls.

We will also update you with results and information from NRM North and TLC’s eastern barred bandicoot recovery project along with other land management programs.

No special skills or experience is needed, we will provide all the training and equipment you need.

This project is a partnership between the Tasmanian Land Conservancy, NRM North, Land for Wildlife, the University of Tasmania and the Australian Government.
