Workshop: Citizen Science and Fungal Conservation
September 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$5 – $10
Citizen mycologists play a vital role in collecting data for conservation and protection of threatened fungi. In this workshop you will learn how to use the iNaturalist app to report sightings of fungi as well as have them identified. You will find out how the information is used to help set conservation priorities and protect endangered fungi. You will also learn how to access the information yourself using the Atlas of Living Australia. Presenting the workshop will be Caine Barlow who completed his Masters in Bioinformatics assisting with the IUCN Red-Listing of endangered fungi.
Please download the iNaturalist app: https://www.inaturalist.org prior to your arrival (but if you are having trouble downloading the app, have no fear we can give you a hand on the day).
