Birds, plants, flowers, person - wild about freo.


Record and share your observations around Freo / Walyalup.


Whether you’re an expert, nature lover or you’ve just had more time recently to stop and smell the flowers, we want you to help observe and record what’s wild about Freo! We want to know what you find in your backyard or even when out exercising locally.

We have a variety of environments, from marine on our western border through to tall tuart, jarrah and marri trees at our eastern border in Sir Frederick Samson Park, one of our two bush forever sites. We even have an international flyway overhead!

Many of our plants and animals are found nowhere else. We’re located within the wider south-west WA global biodiversity hotspot, which means the area has over 1,500 vascular plants found nowhere else on earth (endemic) but has also lost over 70% of its primary native vegetation.


Get started:

1. Head to our dedicated Wild About Freo project page on the iNaturalist platform where you can log in or sign up to record your finds. You can also seek advice from the community and aim to move up the leader board!


2. Don't forget to pop back here to tell us what you've been up to on our story board below.


3. Stay tuned for more news and tips on supporting local biodiversity.


Have fun but please ensure you follow the current health advice in relation to COVID19. For the latest information, visit the WA Department of Health website.
