The final weeks!

We're in the final 2 weeks of the Telephone Gap BioBlitz! Your contributions will be essential in our analyses of biological life in this area. Many of you have made multiple visits to the project area throughout the length of the BioBlitz and your information is invaluable. We appreciate all the time and effort expended to document species from all taxa (through a pandemic no less)! Thank you to our participants!!

Winter tracking in the Telephone Gap area

Winter greetings! With this fresh snow, now is a great time to get out and look for animal tracks. We’d love to know what mammals are out and about. Grab your camera, don your snowshoes or skis, and explore some of the more remote areas away from roads and trailheads. Happy tracking!
