Outcome 2 - More data for research and conservation


QuestaGame players can choose to share their sightings for the benefit of science.  Sightings data is available on the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, and the Atlas of Living Australia, which also provide interactive analysis tools.

Data from the University bioQuest will support future informed decisions around on-campus biodiversity management. It will also open the door to all sorts of open research opportunities.
