NatureMapr has been very fortunate to receive a significant increase in our funding from ACT Government.
This is a huge deal for us and I want to express our sincere thanks to Clare McInnes and her colleagues for fighting hard and planning well in advance to make this funding a reality.
The funding now gives NatureMapr an annual citizen science contribution/subsidy over the next 3 years, that recognises the project as one of the major/largest citizen science projects in the ACT community.
Our thanks goes to ACT government personnel who are actively embracing the platform such as the GIS Team, Conservation Officers and all the Park Rangers, all the way up to the Directors, Director General and Minister for their recognition and appreciation of what NatureMapr and our community of unbelievable expert moderators and users are doing for citizen science in the ACT.
It means we can keep going, keep paying for the underlying infrastructure that keeps the lights on and actually grow and expand from here.
Thanks for all your continued support and patience. It has been a really hard couple of years!
