Caring for our Coastal Emus

Calling all citizen scientists and wildlife enthusiasts! Clarence Valley Council is keen to learn about where you've seen coastal emus.

Local landholders, together with the Clarence Valley Council, the Office of Environment and Heritage and the Coastal Emu Alliance are working to protect coastal emus and their habitat. To do this, we are collecting data on where our emus are located via an online register. The emu register will let you pinpoint a sighting location on a map. You'll also be able to add more information about the sighting.

Furthermore, if you haven't seen an emu but still want to share your story - go for it! Head to the stories tab to begin telling us about your experiences.

  3. Once the pin has been positioned please complete the comment section. Mandatory questions are marked *, the remainder of the questions are optional but appreciated. Press submit once you have finished. Please note that information entered in the survey is viewable to the public once you have submitted the point, so please do not include identifying notes or defamatory remarks.
  4. Continue adding points until you have shown us all of your emu sightings. Note that if a sighting has already been identified, you are welcome to submit a new point with updated information as this helps us to determine seasonal movement patterns and use of particular areas.
We thank you for your input in this project.
