About NL Nature
Introducing Newfoundland and Labrador's Nature Tracker
www.NLNature.com is the Newfoundland Geoweb project, which is part of a larger project investigating how the public uses the interactive technologies available on the internet to work for environmental change.
There are different nodes of the project across Canada, each focused on a different environmental issue. The Newfoundland node is focused on public engagement with wildlife and species-at-risk.See the links below to find out more about the other project nodes.
1) As part of a larger project investigating how the public uses the internet and web-based mapping technologies, this project will monitor public participation in the activity of generating observational data on wildlife and species-at-risk;
2) To provide researchers with data about observations of wildlife and species-at-risk in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. These data can be used as part of trends monitoring, to detect unusual species occurrences, and to detect novel findings of species in areas where they have previously not been observed. These data supplied by the public will complement data collected by university and government researchers.
