The Walk See Play initiative is a simple nature game for all ages that has been set up for Threatened Species Day (7th of September) and Biodiversity Month (all of September).
The Southern Highlands is rich in biodiversity and provides critical habitat for threatened species. However, they can often by elusive and tricky to observe while walking through Southern Highlands bushland reserves and National Parks.

If participants, prefer to take photographs with their camera, they should firstly visit the Threatened Species Day web page to see what the nominated list of biodiversity tracks, traces and habitat features are. They can then add their photographs by using the web app on a computer at home.
Keep an eye out for Walk See Play signs that will be installed temporarily at participating locations.
