Become a citizen scientist today with SealSpotter

Australian Fur Seals play an important role in Australia's marine ecosystems, particularly around Phillip Island. To better understand them, we need your help.

SealSpotter allows anyone with a computer to contribute to the management and protection of our oceans by counting seals in images captured with a UAV (a.k.a 'drone'). This allows Phillip Island Nature Parks scientists to analyse the population and marine debris entanglement data faster and more accurately, leading to a greater understanding of their world and the threats they face.

This year's SealSpotter Challenge may be over but our portal will remain open for general counting.  SealSpotter Portal
