Feature Expedition

Koala Drinkers - Low Platform Drinkers (GeoD 2)

Camera TrapsSaving our Species - Koala

Welcome to Koala Drinkers – Low Platform Drinker 

Your tasks are: 

1. Learn how to ID animals and tag the images by clicking on the ‘View tutorial’ button before you ‘Get Started’.  

2. Identify the animal/s in each image.

3. Choose the number of individuals from the drop-down list.

4. If you find something interesting in the image add this into the ‘Notes’ field. 

These drinker stations in the North West slopes of NSW were put out to see if Koalas and other Australian animals use supplementary drinking water during periods of hot and dry weather. These Koala drinkers were placed on a platform close to the ground under trees which either had Koalas in them or evidence of Koala activity.

In this expedition, you will see images of visiting animals from dusk to dawn, captured on a motion-sensing camera.

By participating in this expedition, you are helping scientists to assess how effective the drinker stations are in providing water for threatened species, particularly Koalas which will help us to improve on-ground conservation and management actions.
