Message from the researcher

South Coast Threatened Fauna Recovery Project avatar

The Zooniverse project for the Western Ground Parrot is very exciting – having witnessed a serious population decline over the last few decades, I’m so pleased to see how so many people are willing to help us gather the critical data that we need to protect and manage this enigmatic species. I’m looking forward to seeing the results applied to recovery of the ground parrot population. -- Dr Allan Burbidge, Principal Research Scientist. 1 June 2022

South Coast Threatened Fauna Recovery Project

About South Coast Threatened Fauna Recovery Project

The Western Australian Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions' (DBCA) South Coast Fauna Recovery Project team are focused on the monitoring and management of a suite of unique threatened fauna found on the south coast of Western Australia, which includes three critically endangered species, and a number of other threatened fauna, their more common counterparts and the feral predators that occur within their range. Operating in conjunction with DBCA's Western Shield Program, Birdlife Australia and two dedicated community groups, this work is conducted to increase our knowledge of these elusive threatened species and underpin management actions in nature reserves and national parks from Albany to Israelite Bay.

We are asking for your help to assist us in identifying the unique and wonderful wildlife and feral predators that occur within our management areas; and you may be rewarded with a glimpse into the lives of one or more of the elusive threatened native species that call the south coast home.

Important note - as well as native species our project is recording feral cats and foxes, predators introduced to Australian in the last 250 years. Some of the photos you may see are of foxes and cats with their prey, and volunteers processing these images will occasionally see dead animals. The identification of prey in these images is important to the project team to understand which species are being predated by foxes and cats.
