The Australian Museum's voluteer-powered digitisation program DigiVol hosted its five-year celebration on Monday 9 May under the whale in Wild Planet with many sponsors, colleagues, staff and volunteers attending.
Wild Planet was a wonderful venue to enjoy drinks, canapes and heartfelt speeches given by Kim McKay and Rebecca Johnson expressing their appreciation of the DigiVol project and its extraordinary volunteers.
Tracey Steggall, a DigiVol sponsor did an outstanding job in helping Kim to hand out certificates of appreciation to 27 volunteers who had volunteered for three years, five years and completed significant transcription milestones.
