Conservation Research in NSW
This website has been set up for research into conservation of NSW wildlife and to host the community bio-diversity surveys of the New South Wales Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water (DECCW).
The current survey for DECCW is about four different classes of wildlife.
- koalas and how often they have been seen in the last year.
- flying-foxes (sometimes called fruit bats). - Grey-head Flying Fox, Black Flying fox and Little Red Flying fox
- feral cats i.e. domestic cats living in the wild.
- three bird species , one common species the emu, and two vulnerable species, the bush stone curlew and the barking owl
Additionally wombats, kangaroos and cane toads have been included. The aim of the community survey is to gather knowledge about the extent of the current habitat of these species to assist the department in animal management across NSW.
The survey is now open, and can be started from
This survey is part of an ongoing project and was designed by the Biodiversity Wildlife Survey team in the Scientific Services Division of the Department of Environment, Climate Change & Water.
