Our Team

NatureMapr is only made possible due to the efforts of our team:


Aaron Clausen

Founder and Software Developer

IT Software Professional with a love for the natural world. My life changed in 2013 when I rode my mountain bike over one of the last remaining colonies of the critically endangered Canberra Spider Orchid - I never looked at the bush the same way again.

NatureMapr then took over my life and the job isn't done yet. I'm determined to see NatureMapr in use by every local government organisation across Australia.

Social Media

Born and bred in Canberra, with close to 20 years experience bird watching in the local region.  A member of the Mt Taylor ParkCare Group, COG, FoG and Save the Murrumbidgee River Corridor, since joining Canberra Nature Map I have discovered a new passion for all the local native wildlife in Canberra and the surrounding areas.  I enjoy using the power of social media to spread the message about the beauty and inherent value of all things native here in Canberra and hope that this will encourage others to join the NatureMapr revolution and by extension to lobby for conservation of the environment.
