Grant Activity:
1 Million Turtles – Conservation through community science and action
Purpose:
1MillionTurtles .com is a national citizen science project that will help us learn what is happening to Australia’s declining turtles. Australia faces catastrophic environmental change, including bushfires, droughts, and impacts of pest animals. Our project will uniquely empower citizen scientists (CS) to protect their own native wildlife. We will recruit CSs to the 1MillionTurtles.com program, which developed the TurtleSAT mobile phone app. We will use TurtleSAT and workshops to train CSs to scientifically collect critical wildlife data and protect turtles threatened by foxes and pigs. Outcomes include improved scientific literacy in Indigenous and regional communities and national assessments of the threats Australia’s animals face.
