Wild Backyards is Queensland Museum's response to the Citizen Science project of the Atlas of Living Australia.

Wild Backyards makes it easy for you to identify the hundreds of animals that you may find in your backyard, with photographs and user-friendly information of common species.

Then by uploading your photographs and sightings to this site, you will be helping scientists track the many species throughout Brisbane, providing an invaluable record of our biodiversity.

Your sightings will be sent to the Atlas of Living Australia portal, an initiative to improve access to essential information on Australia's biodiversity.

Wild Backyards has been built on top of a Citizen Science web application tool called the Biological Data Recording System.
