"Become a Citizen Scientist": Training at the Australian Reptile Park

Begin your training as a Citizen Scientist here at the Australian Reptile Park. The Conservation Ark at the Australian Reptile Park is where you will see turtles displaying natural behaviours and by tapping on the link below, you will start your training to record these behaviours into TurtleSAT. Most importantly, you will learn more about our native turtles and where to see (and record) them in the wild around your neighbourhood.

Community maps freshwater turtles

TurtleSAT is a Citizen Science mapping tool produced by the 1 Million Turtles Community Conservation program. TurtleSAT allows communities to map the location of freshwater turtles in waterways and wetlands across the country. Australia's unique freshwater turtles are in crisis - their numbers are declining and your help is needed to record where you see turtles in your local area.

Rainfall will trigger turtle nesting - Click here to get involved

Recent rainfall will trigger turtles to move, and to start nesting. If you see a freshwater turtle (or a turtle nest) near your local creek, farm dam or on the road, enter the location of your sighting in this website. Your sightings will help land managers to track the movement and behaviour of turtles, to protect them and their offspring in your local area.

Reducing fox predation is a key objective

Fox predation on freshwater turtles and their eggs can be extremely high. This project aims to help identify areas for enhancements to fox control to increase the survival rates of freshwater turtles. TurtleSAT works directly with the FoxScan project to reduce the impacts of foxes.

Project partners and community supporters

This project is sponsored by community, government, industry, and research partners. TurtleSAT is also supported by the the FeralScan initiative, and the Centre for Invasive Species Solutions.
