DELWP has developed an app to help volunteers monitor the health of our Marine Parks, including Ricketts Point.
For those members who take photos and videos of our marine life, this is a great step forward.
The new Sea Search app allows volunteers to better monitor our unique marine life, by helping them identify what they are seeing, and then instantly uploads the information to Parks Victoria for review and public release.
It means that volunteers and rangers need no longer upload information manually – a time consuming task.
Citizen science is incredibly important in monitoring what is happening in our Marine Sanctuaries, so do make use of it if you can.
See the press release below for further information, and please share this information with other marine carers.
