Become part of a national study of Brushtail Possums


We are calling for participants to be part of the national citizen science project looking at antibiotic resistance in wildlife Saturday 13th April.

Urban Wildlife: possums, citizen science and antibiotic resistance

Learn about the ecology of urban possums and how you can be part of a national study of brushtail possums. Participants will receive a collection kit so they can participate in the study.

The workshop is presented by biologists from Macquarie University the University of Sydney. Associate Professor Michelle Power and Koa Webster study antibiotic resistance in Australian wildlife and coordinate a national citizen science project called Scoop a Poop, and Associate Professor Clare McArthur is an expert on urban possums. Together they will present an evening of fascinating possum (and poop!) facts, and explain how you can get involved in the Scoop a Poop project.

Workshop activities include learning how to identify poop from different wildlife species, introduction to the Scoop a Poop app, and practicing using the Scoop a Poop collection kit.

The workshop is suitable for ages 10+. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
