Virtual volunteers assist the Australian Museum by transcribing specimen labels, field notes and diaries. This helps to unlock the hidden knowledge in their vast collections. You can help them via your own computer.
Being a ‘virtual volunteer’ is a way you can make a contribution even if you can’t leave your house. All you need is a computer, an internet connection and a phone.
This form of volunteering is ideal for dedicated, detail-oriented people who are willing to join the community of volunteers who are helping with the daunting task of digitising the Museum’s large natural history collections. This can be completed anywhere and at any time which is convenient for you. This is a worthwhile project where your time and effort will be greatly appreciated.
Volunteers already on the site have said that they feel that it is a rewarding experience knowing that the information they capture becomes accessible to scientists, conservation agencies and government departments across the country who can then work together to better understand, manage and conserve our precious biodiversity.
