Inspiring Kids, Empowering Naturalists, Informing Biologists. WOMPA? takes its name from the Aboriginal (Anangu Pitjantjatjara) word “wampa”, which means “I don’t know” or “It’s a mystery” and symbolises the key role and excitement of natural history discovery in this project. WOMPA? encourages members of the public to lodge their photos or recordings of unknown animals, plants, tracks or other signs so they can be identified by online experts. Good quality photos will be stored in the national biological database. Therefore by submitting a photo of a strange critter you might not only learn what it is and where else it has been found, you will help scientists to understand and manage your special find. And if you recognise someone else’s unusual photo you too can suggest what it is and be eligible for a reward. Whether it is a weed, a beautiful flower, a rare lizard, a strange web or a beachcomber’s surprise, WOMPA? will help to inspire and educate Aussies to discover, understand and assist our amazing plants and animals.
