National Waterbug Blitz 

This national program engages the community in citizen science initiatives designed to increase awareness about our beloved waterbugs and enhance data collection via a custom designed mobile app. We helped design and deliver an evaluation that assisted to better understand the user experience and collate valuable feedback on the mobile app.

Bellingen Riverwatch

Project Checkpoint's founder, Geetha Ortac has been involved in this project since its inception and all things project management and evaluation. This project broke many grounds by creating a genuine connection between the scientists and the community. Bellingen Riverwatch is managed by OzGreen based in Bellingen NSW. This project contributes to a critically endangered freshwater turtle species by engaging the community to collect monthly water quality data.

Who's living on my land?

This was the very first citizen science project that Geetha designed and delivered! She started as a volunteer with the National Parks Association of NSW and was later converted to a paid staff to set up and manage this project. This project worked with private landowners to train them to set up remote sensor cameras on their properties and discover what was living on their land. 

Stakeholder Relations

This project was initiated to improve the working relationships between two agencies. It started with in-depth analysis to fully understand the factors that led to the communication breakdown. This work involved numerous stakeholder negotiation meetings, situation analysis and a step-by-step approach to identifying and applying solutions that resulted in successful outcomes for both parties.
