QuestaGame app

NPWS has installed around 400 nest boxes in fire-affected areas of Warrumbungle National Park. Each nest box has a unique identification number and provides important nesting sites for birds and animals that make their homes in tree hollows - including parrots, cockatoos, gliders, possums, and bats.

With the free QuestaGame app you can follow a nest box quest and help us monitor which species are using them. All sightings go into the Atlas of Living Australia and NSW National Parks' database of animal sightings.
