FeralScan is a free resource for farmers, landholders, pest controllers and the community to map sightings of pest animals, record the damage they cause, and document or plan control activities in their local area.
FeralScan exists as a website (www.feralscan.org.au), mobile website and a dedicated App (iOS Apple and Android). Use your Smartphone or tablet to record and update information about pest animals in the field, whether you are connected or disconnected to the internet.
The App can be used to record pests, navigate to locations, and record where you undertake control actions. Your pest data can then be examined more closely on the full website, where you can print maps, and use the data to guide management decisions.
Mobile phone and iPad users can now access the latest information about Australia’s pest animals via the new Field Guide to Pest Animals App.
Developed by the Invasive Animals CRC, this App contains species profiles for 53 of Australia’s worst pest animals, including: species descriptions, photo galleries, footprints, audio calls, maps, control techniques, quick links to plenty of pest control resources.
The App is currently available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. It is hoped we will be able to extend to Android devices in the near future.
Field Guide to Pest Fish of Australia
Available soon – watch this space! Mobile phone and iPad users will also soon have access to another great mobile app, the Field Guide to Pest Fish of Australia app (available soon).
There are over 1000 exotic fish species present in Australia, and more than 40 exotic freshwater species have established wild populations in Australia’s waterways. Pest fish (such as common carp) severely damage river ecosystems and threaten recreational fishing.
Use this app to identify species, view distribution maps and photos, and access resources for 25 pest fish species in our freshwater rivers. Additional species will be added to future updates of this app.
The App will initially be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch device users, and it should be available to Android users in the near future.Last updated: January 19, 2016
