The Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) provides free, online access to information about Australia’s amazing biodiversity. It is collaborative, open infrastructure that pulls together biodiversity data from multiple sources, and makes it accessible and reusable.
As part of the Riparian Walks program, funded by the GBCMA, we’ve been taking geotagged photos of our local waterways to get snapshots of their overall health and features. These photos are visible to the public, and can be found by zooming in to locations along the Hughes and Seven Creeks, or clicking this link.
Recently, there has been some concern that some of our trees are under stress due to a changing climate. This project allows everyone to get involved in helping us find out more about the health of our trees now, and if there are changes in tree health over time.
The Victorian Biodiversity Atlas (VBA) is the collated information of flora and fauna sightings across Victoria.
You can use the atlas to search and map species from across the state, check for threatened species in your area and add your own observations.
Indian Myna populations and habitats are rapidly increasing, forcing out and competing with native species of birds.
MynaScan is a community website that allows you to record and map sightings of myna birds, their impacts, and control activities in your local area. Use MynaScan data to help decide where to control myna birds in your local area.
Visualising Victoria’s Biodiversity (VVB) – a place to discover and share spatial information on Victoria’s environmental values, conservation activities and research.
In 2018, the Strathbogie Shire undertook a massive survey of roadside vegetation that included information on weeds, conservation value and flora and fauna that could be found on our roadsides.
