Our Discovery Mission
Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to discover and document all remaining Australian species of plants, animals, fungi and other organisms ... in a generation.
Part 3 - Whiteboards
The ideas below have been contributed to the whiteboard for discussion during the roundtable breakouts. You can add to them on the Whiteboard ideas page
Roundtable 1: What field campaigns are we likely to need to support our mission?
Many un-named species are already represented in our collections, but others will not be, or still need more specimens. This roundtable will consider issues around field work, including:
Do we need to plan a field work campaign as part of this mission, or will field work be conducted on an as-needs basis?
What role could there be for the public and citizen science in field collecting?
If field work needs to be ramped up, should this happen early or late in the mission?
What types of support structures and programs should we build to support field collecting for our mission?
