Mornington Peninsula Shire is excited to invite residents and visitors to learn about how they can contribute to biodiversity values and citizen science projects, through the use of iNaturalist.
This training session will equip you will the skills to make your own observations using iNaturalist and understand how your contributions can inform meaningful citizen science projects. It's also just a great way to learn more about biodiversity around your home, workplace, local nature reserve or school.
We have asked iNaturalist expert Luis Mata to deliver the training. Luis is a researcher in the School of Ecosystem and Forest Sciences at the University of Melbourne, where he is collaborating in a range of projects seeking to provide evidence of the ecological and community engagement benefits of urban greening actions. He is also associated with the People, Nature, Place Research Program at RMIT University's Centre for Urban Research, where he is researching the social and ecological benefits of wildlife gardening.
