The tagging of wildlife is conducted as joint research projects between the Royal Botanic Garden and other institutions (e.g. University of Sydney, Australian Museum, Western Sydney University). Our aim is to assess the size of study populations, individuals site-loyalty and movements within (and beyond) the study region. We will also investigate wildlife behaviour, particularly in association with breeding.
If you see tagged wildlife, please report the tag number and location with this app.
Our mission is to understand the ecology of wildlife populations. Gaining a greater understanding of wildlife ecology means that we are better able to live alongside with native wildlife in general. Planning for both humans and wildlife in cities, agricultural and bush habitats is important for conserving the diversity of our native wildlife.
