This project was supported by funding from the WA State Natural Resource Management Program (NRM).

The field research underpinning this guide was supported by the grant of various authorities and in-kind contributions from the Department of Parks & Wildlife (WA) and the Department of Fisheries (WA).

In 2016, Fremantle Ports provided financial support to improve network communication and the coordination of research and conservation activities, by developing a social media platform and to establish a database for the citizen science project.

The Northern Agricultural Catchment Council (NACC) supported some of the work in the Houtman Abrolhos. Many citizen scientists have assisted along the way and we are extremely grateful for their contributions.
