Wildlife of Australia's Cloud Forests

Earthwatch Expedition: Wildlife of Australia's Cloud Forests

The wet tropics of Queensland represent the last remaining part of Australia’s primeval forest. In a home to parrots, pythons, possums, and tree kangaroos, we need volunteers to help shape our understanding of how climate change alters landscapes, and what this means for the creatures who live there. Volunteers will spot nocturnal wildlife, conduct surveys of birds, lizards and frogs, and more.
