NatureMap is unavailable

We apologise for any inconvenience.

    On Thursday 17 December 2021, NatureMap was taken offline indefinitely. The Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions understands that NatureMap provided a valued public service, and that this situation will pose some challenges until the Biodiversity Information Office (BIO) is able to provide the functionality previously available through NatureMap. Completion of the new BIO platform is a McGowan Government priority, and it is anticipated that biodiversity information will be available through this platform by mid-2022.
    In the meantime, please send requests for biodiversity data that you would previously have obtained via NatureMap, to:, using "NatureMap search request" in the subject of your email. Please specify the requested search area (central coordinates/administrative boundary/attach a shapefile), search radius (km), chart datum (if relevant) and any other information relevant to the search.
    Please note that you will not be charged for data requests that would have previously been obtained through NatureMap. Data searches for occurrences of conservation-listed (threatened, priority or specially protected) species and ecological communities, will continue to be charged for commercial purposes.

    Thank you for your patience while we work towards making Western Australian biodiversity data more discoverable, accessible, and usable.
