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.

    I saw several coastal emus in a treeless paddock, close to the new bypass 5th of January 2019 (late afternoon).

    I hope farm dogs have a limited ability to roam on those private properties too. 

    Regards,

    Damian
