Australian Wildlife Cams

Multi-award winning interactive environmental science project - including a coveted AIMIA award. Watch and interact with live animals in nest boxes at the Melbourne Sanctuary.

Offering a unique, immersive, and measurable educational experience, the Australian Wildlife Cams website puts visitors right inside nestboxes at the Melbourne Wildlife Sanctuary.

Real time infra-red video feeds from the sanctuary broadcast the animals' natural antics, using the Internet to give us a view of animal behavioural science that has never been available before.

Did you know that baby sugar gliders play like kittens, or that red ants often bump heads in the crowd?

Researchers at Latrobe University have been fascinated to witness young animal behaviours and night time manoeuvres for the first time.

Students, teachers, scientists, and interested passers-by can participate directly in the study of native Australian animals by recording the behaviour they see in real time. The website collects this data and aggregates it to provide interactive graphs and reports.

Reports generated by the site are enhanced by comparison with pre-recorded research data and videos.

The scientifically notable exercise and the educational experience is supported by specialised content services from The Gould League - FAQ's, historical videos, habitat information, and teaching resources.

The Australian Wildlife Cams website is something special, you should visit to see for your self.

Australia's Leading Web Award

The AIMIA awards are the most prestigious in our industry. The highly innovative Wildlife Cams website took out the AIMIA award for "Best Science Website".
