2. Download and activate BioTag to take part in the Koala Count (you need to register at www.koalacount.org.au before you can activate BioTag).
3. BioTag interacts with your camera and GPS, allowing you to take a photo and record the Koalas you see.
4. BioTag is GPS enabled so you don’t need to have phone reception to record a sighting.
