3. Upload your koala sightings.

Download the NatureMapr iPhone App or the NatureMapr Android App and activate the Koala Count 2015 project.

I made this sighting on behalf of Eric Finley, who initially recorded the koala sighting on the eremaea bird sighting website: www.eremaea.com.

Very meaningful photo. It looks like below him is all his fur caught on that barbed wire. I hope he is ok?
