One of the most valuable ways to help is by reporting your own observations of dieback. It's simple, just record the location of your observation and a photo (if you have one) using our online dieback survey. All observations will be reviewed by us. Ideally each observation should include an image of the indicator of wood-borers that you've noticed. You can even upload images that are decades old if they include a clear example of wood-borer damage.
We will soon release our Save A Snow Gum apps for Android and iPhone to simplify the process further.
Volunteer or support us
Our work involves remote-area surveys. Because we're working with trees and the insects that attack them, surveys during peak periods involve both day-time and evening work. We are also planning field experiments. Our ability to complete the survey and experimental work relies on support from Government institutions, private companies and, at times, the public.
Support can take many forms. While we, at times, accept volunteers, COVID-19 restrictions mean we cannot take members of the public on field-survey campaigns. We still welcome expressions of interest for the future.
We welcome assistance from community groups and ski-lodge managers to reduce costs associated with long-term stays in the mountains. If you want to help, complete the form below.
