What CamelScan provides

CamelScan is a community mapping resource that allows anyone to map sightings of feral camels in the wild throughout Australia, and any observed damage they are causing.
Feral camel populations are estimated to cause over $10 million damage each year, and their numbers are increasing. In order to reduce the damage they are causing, we need to know where they are. CamelScan needs your help to map sightings of feral camels in your local area. CamelScan can be used by anyone and the more information we add, the more useful the maps will become.

What CamelScan provides

CamelScan is one of many initiatives aimed at reducing the damage caused by feral camels in Australia - and we invite you to enter feral camel sighting data in the CamelScan Google Map. CamelScan provides:

  • A free Google mapping tool to allow you to map sightings of feral camels and record any damage that feral camels may have caused in your area
  • Facilities to print a map, upload feral camel photos, and see the latest feral camel sightings in Australia.

Report feral camel sightings!

If you have seen feral camels recently, please report your sightings on this website. CamelScan needs to know when and where you have seen feral camels, how many you have seen, and what damage they may have caused (e.g damage to water pumps). Information about any control that may have occurred is also very useful. CamelScan will also provide information back to you, so you can see where camels are at any stage. CamelScan is supported through the Australian Feral Camel Management Project and the Invasive Animals CRC. Enter your sighting or camel damage data online today.
