MAGNT wins award

Congratulations to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) which has just won a Northern Territory Chief Minister’s Award for Excellence in the Public Sector in the ‘Enhancing Culture and Lifestyle’ category!

At an awards ceremony in Darwin, the app was recognised as an innovative and collaborative project, that continues to bring information and enjoyment to thousands of Territorians and their visitors.

The app was put together by the Territory’s leading scientists, images and sounds from the MAGNT collection as well as from external photographers and volunteers. It was developed in collaboration with Museum Victoria and an app now exists for every state and territory (see What animal was that?)

Download the app on your Apple or Android phone, and use it to identify over 600 species, from animals found in tropical rivers and reefs to the deserts of Central Australia – everything from colourful birds, iconic fish and mammals, dangerous snakes and crocs, through to butterflies, tiny termites and wasps.

And its FREE!

MAGNT also has a new website which can be found here.
