University of Tasmania professor Peter McQuillan and former student Javier de Salas came up with an idea to enable the public to contribute to the worthy cause of cataloguing Tasmania’s fantastic biodiversity.
This is an example of how a simple wordpress site can turn a big idea into workable website.
The site enables anybody in the public to ‘Upload’ any photos they have taken of potential new species, where a few selected ‘Specialists’ can review them. Once a new species, or example or a rare species has been found, it is catalogued and added the site including the location where the particular specimen was found.
If you would like to contribute to this worthy cause please follow this link for instructions.
