CVA’s First Online National Wildlife Monitoring Project Supported by Aon

Aon supports our first online National Wildlife Monitoring Project opening a digital window into the secret lives of wildlife

Aon has had a longstanding partnership with Conservation Volunteers Australia since 2009. In 2020, we are excited to announce that Aon will be supporting our first Online National Wildlife Monitoring Project that enables people to connect with nature remotely via our campaign engagement platform, The Campfire.

As part of our Wild Futures campaign, this project will see ten motion-sensor wildlife camera stations installed across locations in Woodlands (VIC), and near bushfire affected areas in Lismore (NSW) and Adelaide Hills (SA). This initiative will help monitor species such as bandicoots and koalas in locations where it is most needed and provide an opportunity for Aon employees and the community to become active science citizen participants. By keeping a close watch on these wildlife digital images, they will be able to help scientists track key species in their natural habitat and protected areas.

Engaging science citizens in this project provides an opportunity for knowledge-sharing and education. The digital images captured will share information that was previously only accessible to researchers or habitat and species experts with the community and Aon employees, making it a unique and exciting project.

“The Aon Charitable Foundation is a long-time partner of CVA, and to have this online opportunity to support CVA and Australian native wildlife, while providing a fantastic engagement opportunity for our colleagues is amazing.  We are very happy to be involved with this project.”
