We're 2022 Eureka Prize Finalists!

G'day everyone,

In a bit of very exciting news, the Environment Recovery Project has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources Eureka Prize for Innovation in Citizen Science!

We started the Environment Recovery Project in the hope of gathering scientifically meaningful biodiversity data by engaging everyday people in bushfire recovery via citizen science. The Project has exceeded our expectations, both in terms of the volume of data generated, and importantly, the meaningful, ongoing engagement with project members right across the country.

The Environment Recovery Project being nominated for a Eureka Prize is a testament to the work of citizen scientists and the value of citizen science to biodiversity research. Your observations can and do make a difference.

So from us here at ERP HQ to everyone who has contributed to the Project or Big Bushfire Bioblitz, a huge THANK YOU!
