Dragons of Sydney is a citizen science project run by the National Parks Association of NSW that aims to help Eastern Water Dragons by highlighting their role in the environment and the threats to their survival at a series of events for local school and community groups.

Participants assist directly with conservation of the reptiles through bush regeneration work to improve habitat and by participating in a citizen science survey to contribute to our understanding of the species behaviour.

The project is supported by Taronga Zoo Sydney, Conservation Volunteers Australia, Macquarie University and Greater Sydney Local Land Services through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
