Citizen Science - Discovery Circle

You can become a citizen scientist, discovering the natural environment and helping to conduct scientific research.


Come to our August Bioblitzes!

this August.


Join the Discovery Circle for fun opportunities to contribute to scientific research through Citizen Science! Hands-on activities are the basis of Citizen Science projects, like recording wildlife sightings, collecting water samples or reporting debris on the beach.

Citizen Science projects can focus on animals, like birds, bats, bees or bettongs. Or they can tackle how we manage local environments, from our gardens, to parks, to nature reserves.

There are a number of reasons you might get involved in a Citizen Science project. You might be fascinated by the topic of the project, or want to learn more about it. Or you might be concerned about changes you have noticed in the environment. 

Previous UniSA projects have focussed on local wildlife in South Australia, including koalas, possums, magpies, spiders and bluetongue lizards. Also, sign up for our newsletter to keep up-to-date with new projects.
