Bellingen Riverwatch - community water quality data 2017 to current

Bellingen Riverwatch engages volunteer citizen scientists to test water quality at multiple sites across the Bellinger and Kalang to create a long-term data set which supports the recovery of the Critically Endangered Bellinger River Snapping Turtle and other threatened species.

This dataset is a record of the data collected by community citizen scientists at a number of sites across the Bellinger and Kalang catchments. After a significant mortality event for the Bellinger River Snapping Turtle in 2015, scientists and the community identified a need for consistent and ongoing water quality testing in the area.
