短吻針鼴只生活於澳洲及巴布亞新幾內亞,牠們早在2500萬年前已出現在地球。牠們主要受棲息地被破壞、外來入侵物種及氣氛變化所威脅。為幫助了解短吻針鼴的數目,研究人員製作手機應用程式,希望大眾幫忙收集及紀錄短吻針鼴或其糞便的足跡。

the short-beaked echidna is found only in australia and papua new guinea; they have been living on earth for over 25 million years. however, they are threatened mainly by habitat lost, invasive species and climate change. in order to learn more about the population of the short-beaked echidna, researchers developed an app and called for the public to help record locations of echidnas or their scats.
