Field Guide to Tasmanian Fauna

 Field Guide to Tasmanian Fauna 

Explore Tasmania’s unique and diverse wildlife at home or in the great outdoors with the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG) Field Guide app.
Available for both Apple and Android tablet and handheld devices, the app combines detailed animal descriptions with stunning imagery and sounds to provide a valuable reference that can be used in urban, bush and coastal environments.
The app features descriptions of over 700 species, such as the seashells and seastars at the beach, the bugs and beetles in the backyard, and the birds and mammals that might be spotted in the bush.
But while it features many species, it’s still just a fraction of the complete fauna of Tasmania. TMAG scientists will continue to add additional species and refine descriptions over time.
