My arts project was recently posted to ALA see http://www.ala.org.au/blogs-news/spotlight-on-ala-users-visual-artist-peter-forward/
I add to Atlas of Living Australia’s data base when I take photos or recognize a species. Ordinary citizens can help here by building knowledge about what is in our wild places and even backyards. If I cannot identify the plant or animal I log it to WOMPA which is part of the Bowerbird database. These databases apparently combine their sightings, although I’m not sure about this. After entering to WOMPA experts will view the photo for identification. Don’t forget to place a car key or coin or matchbox next to the object to show size. ALA is also great for me when making my sculptures.
ALA is also working with First People, see
Jalma (Cheeky Yam, Dioscorea bulbifera)
I don’t see myself as a photographer, but as a follow up to my Warru experience I have decided to post photos of species I observed and recorded to the Atlas of Living Australia http://www.ala.org.au/
Mating dragonflies, Hattah
Great crested grebes
Hattah lake November 2015 with its water allocation
Not a Murray cod but very large…..you guess
Regent parrots, currently listed as endangered
maybe just a cabbage moth.
Little corella, thousands of these on the return trip following the wheat harvest
Weebill, not sure which one
Eastern rosella at hollow.
Hattah lakes is a favourite over night stop heading north, its amazing what can be seen in an hour or two. Next camp is in South Australia, back soon with another batch of photos.
