Snail Snap 2023
Thursday 15 June | 5pm - 6pm
4.45pm for a 5pm start
No, it’s not a card game! It's a community initiative helping us further our knowledge about a group of endemic land snails, Bothriembryon, affectionately called ‘Boths’.
These relatively small, shelled molluscs can be found in most parts of south western Australia with many species listed as threatened. That’s where the community comes in. During the winter months Snail Snap enlists the public’s help to keep an eye out for live crawling snails or even their empty shells and then upload any sightings to the iNaturalist app
WA Museum scientists will then provide identification and feedback on sightings in the hope new or rare species are found!
Come and meet WA Museum scientist, Corey Whisson, to find out more about “Boths" and how you can get involved this winter.
