BioBlitz ‘a hit’ at Bunjil Rocks – Report now out!

Northern Agricultural Catchments Council, Yarra Yarra Catchment Management Group and Moore Catchment Council were proud to  co-host the 2017 Bunjil Rock BioBlitz 23rd & 24th September 2017.

A BioBlitz is a 24-hour event involving rapid collection of data about the biological diversity of a particular site; enabling scientists and other experts to identify as many plant and animal species as can be found in this limited time frame. It doesn’t provide a complete inventory of species, but rather a ‘snapshot’ of the species that occur in the area.

A BioBlitz is a collaborative process, which brings together scientists, skilled amateurs, willing workers and interested ‘others’, with members of the local community, all working together to expand knowledge about the biodiversity of a particular location.

Professional biologists and capable amateurs from the local area, Perth and throughout the Southwest – lent their expertise to the finding and identifying of taxa within their respective field.
