The Field Guide app, developed by Museum Victoria, portrays the rich land based, freshwater and marine life found in the Gippsland Lakes catchment. There are photos and descriptions of over 250 animal species, including those commonly found in and around the Lakes and others that are of special interest. This is only a small fraction of the rich wildlife found in the forests, rivers wetlands and lakes of the Gippsland Lakes catchment.

The app was produced as a result of a series of biodiversity surveys and public engagement events, called the Gippsland Lakes Bioscan, run by Museum Victoria, Parks Victoria and partners in 2014 and 2015. This program was funded by the Victorian State Government for the Gippsland Lakes. You can download the app from iTunes and we expect it to be available on Android in July.
