Latest announcements

 CNM now accepting Mammals19 May 2016

Dear Members,

You may have noticed we've recently added new categories for Mammals.

While we are still bedding the new structure in, we now encourage you to report any mammal sightings that you may have piled up in your digital photo archives or that you come across from here on.

Next stop: Insects + Spiders - more to come in this space soon.

Cheers

Aaron.


 Insects of South-Eastern Australia: - great book now available15 May 2016

The guide not only helps identify 500 of the more common or interesting insects of our area but also tells us about their environment, classification, life history, feeding strategies and behaviour. Fascinating boxes on camouflage, mimicry and many other topics are also included throughout. This book by Roger Farrow will be really helpful when we expand the invertebrate groups covered by Canberra Nature Map - later this year. it retails from CSIRO publishing for $45. The Botanic Gardens bookshop has copies.
