    Event description

    Are you looking for a fun and educational activity for your family?Β 

    GeoCatch is seeking community members to lend a hand in protecting the critically endangered Nguraren (Wester Ringtail Possum) during the 2024 Ringtail Tally. The tally is a citizen science project that runs from 7th April to 4th May and anyone can be involved in collecting data. The information gathered is recorded on the WA Threatened Species Database and tracks population trends, future planning decisions, and conservation projects.

    You can monitor possums in your backyard, local park, or school and contribute to the scientific study of western ringtail possums. The data you collect will be used to track population trends, future planning decisions, and conservation projects. Scientists like you are contributing valuable data to help further conserve this species into the future.

    The data becomes more valuable each year as the Tally is repeated; this will be our 9th Tally!

    The Geographe Bay Catchment contains prime habitat for the critically endangered Western Ringtail Possum. Findings are shared with the community each year.Β 

    What you will be doing in the tally:

    Step 1: Choose your survey site. This is a place where you have seen ringtails before; it may be your own garden, local park, or patch of bush.

    Step 2: Count the number of ringtails seen each evening at least twice a week over the four-week survey period (7th April - 9th May).

    Step 3: Return completed data sheets by May 31, 2024.
