VIC Support NatureMapr in your region (Are you from Local Government?)

Regional Moderators and Administrators wanted

 26 Aug 2021

Hi everyone,

As you know we have been working really hard to bring NatureMapr to more areas in a sustainable way.

We have turned on all of NSW, VIC and QLD and Kangaroo Island in SA at the moment, with the other remaining states on the way soon.

This is underpinned by the brand new mobile app which allows anybody to report a sighting anywhere in Australia in under a minute.

By far, the most important part of NatureMapr is YOU.

We are looking for passionate administrators, category and location moderators to be the custodians of these new regionally focused projects.

If you are interested in a leadership role within the NatureMapr community or heading up or assisting one of the new regional projects in taking shape, we would love to hear from you.

I will be spending more and more time now meeting with regional community groups and local government organisations to help establish grass root relationships between NatureMapr and the amazing people who care about biodiversity across Australia.

I want to pay particular thanks to Dr Michael Mulvaney and Michael Bedingfield for all that they are doing at the moment as we expand our coverage. There is a lot of load on our team and we are continually improving the software platform to make everyones' jobs easier.

Thank you for your continued support everyone.

Cheers

Aaron.

Hello Aaron
I don't know if you can only moderate your own region/LGA, but if not I'd be happy to expand my remit on birds to a broader area, the whole of Australia or if that is too much the whole of New and ACT.
Let me know what works for you.
Cheers

Hi Nigel,

You can definitely moderate other LGAs beyond the area you live.

Thanks very much for your assistance - we'll get your access organised shortly.

Cheers

Aaron.

Hi Aaron, I would be keen to help but what sort of skills are required? I'm not sure I have the required skills. Thanks. Sarah

Hi Sarah,

Thank you very much. You don't need to be an expert. Many of our moderators learn on the job and become better over time, the most important thing is that you are just interested in learning how to identify different species in your chosen categories which you can practise and get better at over time.

Which categories and/or regions were you interested in Sarah?

Cheers

Aaron.

Hi @Gavin,

Thanks heaps for your message and interest in being a moderator in the Evans Head / North Coast region.

We are really excited to you have you on board!

We just need to know which particular categories of plants/animals are you interested in?

E.g. Fish, Birds, Wattles, Orchids etc. Then we can setup your access. You will then start to receive alerts whenever a new sighting within any of those categories comes into the platform. You'll also receive access to some additional tools and data as well.

Cheers

Aaron.

Hi Gavin,

I've just set you up as a moderator for birds on North Coast Nature Map.

You'll notice some extra options around the site now and you'll also be notified whenever somebody reports a bird sighting to see if you can help identify it.

Thanks heaps and please let me know if you have any questions!

Cheers

Aaron.

Hi guys - welcome to Gavin Begbie and Tapirlord as new moderators on the North Coast, NSW site. It is really great to have you guys here.

I can moderate birds in Victoria or southern NSW if you need me. :)

Hi Kylie,

That would be amazing!!! Please nominate your preferred regions and we'll get your access bumped up.

Cheers

Aaron.

I don't really mind Aaron. as long as they are southern NSW or central or eastern Victoria. I haven't done much birding in western victoria, but would be ok with the common to midling birds. Does the ID'ing come at me via the emails inside AWNM?

Hi Aaron & team, I'm happy to help moderate birds for the entirety of the platforms, but if this is too much I'm perfectly content to just continue moderating the current platforms I do. Thanks, Liam
