Biodiversity Portal

Got some time on your hands? If you like biology and maybe always wanted to work in a museum, get a look at all those cool things they keep behind the scenes, you now have the virtual chance.

The Biodiversity Portal is a project by the Atlas of Living Australia, an organisation of Australian museums and university. They gather as much information about Australian fauna and flora as possible. Part of the process is digitalising and transcribing field notes and collection labels and that's where you come in. No background in sciene is needed, just the ability to read some really ... creative handwriting.
Here is a list a list of all the projects that need volunteers right now, more projects will be added. So go register, read the tutorials (seriously, read them!) and then chose a project to work on.
