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.
Get the app from the Apple App Store (Apple tablet and handheld devices)
Get the app from the Google Play Store (Android tablet and handheld devices)
Images and sounds within the app are either from TMAG’s collections or are sourced from external photographers and sound recordists.
For enquiries about using any media featured in the app, some photographers can be contacted directly using the links below. If the image you are interested in is held by TMAG, or by a photographer not listed, please make your enquiry directly to the museum.
