Night Stalk is a great way to become involved in community conservation action and to learn about our native animals, their habitat and their threats. It's is easy, fun and something everyone can do. All you need is a torch and a copy of the Spotter’s Log. Choose a night or number of nights between 1 September and 16 October and spotlight in your local forest/bushland. Record all of the mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs that you find and then post, fax or email your Spotter’s Log to Perth Zoo for collating. The information is collated and made available online for interested members of the community. Particularly interesting sightings of species are also sent to conservation agencies. This regular monitoring can help the community realise which species live in the various habitats of Australia and in turn we hope will encourage conservation action to help protect and preserve the important biodiversity that surrounds us.
