Facebook has many groups dedicated to the identification of different animals (and plants) and sharing of knowledge about their ecology. These groups have thousands of members, many of whom are experts in their fields. Joining these groups will help you in identifying any animals you may have taken photos of, exposing you to photographs of animals from all around Australia which will increase your knowledge about Australia’s fantastic biodiversity. Here is a list of identification groups that Faunaverse loves:
