Dragons of Sydney Harbour - Citizen Science

Are you interested to join us for a day of learning and fun while making a valuable contribution to our native wildlife in Mosman?

You are invited to participate in our citizen science project ‘The Dragons of Sydney Harbour’ delivered by National Parks Association of NSW in collaboration with Mosman Council. Our flagship species, the Eastern Water Dragon, is one of the two sub species of Water Dragons found in Australia. This species has been around for 20 million years and so much is still unknown. To help us understand them better, you will be helping us collect some data on the dragons residing along Bradleys Head walk in Mosman NSW.

As a citizen scientist, you will be trained to identify their sex, measure ground temperature (where the dragon is basking), and canopy cover using cool tools like an infrared thermometer and densiometer.

After a lunchbreak, participants will also get an introduction talk about native vegetation and weeds found in the local Mosman area and get your hands dirty by doing some weeding.

Meeting venue: In front of Athol Hall, Mosman NSW
What to bring: Packed lunch, water, sunscreen, long pants, closed shoes, and hat

Register now as numbers are limited. Only 15 participants per event.
