Help us to help wildlife win!
FAUNA Research Alliance's conservation projects draw together the skills and capacity of people, communities and organisations across Australia to ensure our unique wildlife, their populations, and the ecosystems they maintain are secure for future generations. Help us to achieve this!
Australia & New Zealand have suffered 57 fauna extinctions in the past 200 years
Our amphibians, birds, reptiles and mammals remain at risk.
Port Stephens! Last weekend 72 of you completed the koala community survey, we'd love to see that happen again this weekend!
Don't forget, all visitors and previous residents can have a go too!
Together we can #saveportstephenskoalas
Don't forget about our #PortStephens #Koala Community Survey! 🐨🌳
We've got 116 responses so far in just over a week!
But we aren't done yet! Lets get more #data this weekend and #saveportstephenskoalas!

What do you think is more efficient at detecting #koalas in the bush?
We tested three of these in our recent paper! 🐨🌳👇

Our latest research @NSWDPIE @Uni_Newcastle @ChadleyBera @lachlan_gh @ShelbyR59 @JohnClulow1 @HWConflict
Shows for #koalas drone-thermal surveys outperform traditional survey methods: spotlighting by a little; SAT by a lot!
Great collab indeed!
We found that drones & spotlighting were pretty resilient methods for measuring #koala density in the bush, but SAT did not compare.
