Grab your hat, your camera, and your moth sheet, and get ready for the Big Bushfire BioBlitz! The University of New South Wales’ Centre for Ecosystem Science, the Atlas of Living Australia, the Australian Citizen Science Association, Minderoo’s Fire and Flood Resilience Initiative, and the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment are joining forces to run three bioblitzes across NSW in early 2022 to help track how our native ecosystems are recovering from the 2019-2020 bushfire season.
We've already bioblitzed Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area (Blue Mountains), and Forests of the NSW south coast (Murramarang National Park). Join us for the third and final Big Bushfire Bioblitz in the Rainforests of the NSW north coast and tablelands (Crowdy Bay and Dooragan National Parks) and as we search for bugs, bats, birds and everything in between. We're putting together an exciting line-up of experts to help point out amazing plants, animals, and fungi, explain how they fit into the ecosystem, the impact of the bushfires, and give you all kinds of tips and tricks to help you become a better naturalist!
