As the weather warms up, UNSW researchers name some of their favourite bushwalks and the ways citizen scientists can help them by collecting data along the way.
UNSW Sydney scientists are leading a project to bring the iconic mammal back to Royal National Park after almost 50 years.
UNSW researchers have been involved in a platypus survey on Kangaroo Island which was severely affected by bushfires 18 months ago.
There are many UNSW projects that citizen scientists can get involved in to help protect the environment.
A three-year study has confirmed that significant alterations to flow regimes by dams can have a big impact on downstream platypus populations.
