Redmap stands for Range Extension Database and Mapping project. This project invites Australians to share sightings of marine species that are 'uncommon' to their local seas.

Redmap uses this citizen science data to map which Australian marine species may be extending their distribution in response to changes in the marine environment, such as ocean warming.

This data also highlights regions and species that may be experiencing more distribution changes, so that research can be focused into these areas.

For more information on how you can become a citizen scientist, and help us track the range shifts of marine species, visit their website.
