Citizen scientists and the scientific community working together to support our rivers and their ecosystems by collecting and communicating long-term data to enact positive change.
Bellingen Riverwatch was created to provide consistent water quality data in the Bellinger and Kalang catchments following a disease outbreak that caused a mass death event of the Critically Endangered Bellinger River Snapping Turtle (BRST) in early 2015. A lack of water quality data was identified by scientists and community alike as a priority focus area.
Bellingen Riverwatch is seeking to form partnerships to support this wonderful program.
