SWIFFT is evolving  - New pages will be added here over the coming months, but where necessary during the transition process links will be provided back to the SWIFFT wiki. Which is why we've introduced this owl icon Owl icon. When you see our little owl friend next to a link, this will help you to identify that this link will redirect you back to a link on the original SWIFFT wiki page.



Welcome to the SWIFFT

Advancing Citizen Science through facilitating awareness, information and knowledge sharing in relation to biodiversity and threatened species across Victoria and south-eastern Australia.

SWIFFT is a combined initiative between the community, conservation, education and government sectors. 

SWIFFT mapSWIFFT is freely available to anyone in the community who has an interest in nature conservation or threatened species. SWIFFT actively encourages contributions from members of the community, conservationists, field naturalists, farmers, land carers, researchers, scientists, management agencies and environmental consultants.

SWIFFT is a place where you can share your project, activities, outcomes, current events and ideas and access information from experts in their field. It is also a place where you can share your images of biodiversity projects, species and habitats or go to find out about these things - helping to build a more informed community.
