The Dung Beetle Ecosystem Engineers Project would like to hear from landholders about your experiences with dung beetles. Are you interested in filling a seasonal ‘gap’ in dung beetle activity on your farm? Do numbers seem to be down as a result of any recent events such as sustained drought or previous flooding?
Several levels of beetle activity monitoring will be run by DBEE. While the intensive monitoring is being managed by us we welcome input from groups wishing to be involved in less intensive monitoring. Data from across Australia will be a huge benefit to the DBEE project and allow us to get a big picture of dung beetle activity. If you would like more information on how your group or school might get involved please contact us.
The dung beetle rearing and distribution team are especially keen to work with anyone interested in discussing the possible development of commercial rearing of beetles.

Report your observations
MyDungBeetle Reporter lets you quickly and easily report your observations to Dung Beetle Ecosystem Engineers project experts across Australia. Anyone can help map dung beetle distributions by using their phone to make reports with up to four photos from their camera or gallery, and GPS location of the sighting. Our experts will attempt to identify your beetles and reply back to your device.
