Great Southern Bioblitz 2020 - Lake Mac City

The Great Southern BioBlitz is based on the same format as the worldwide City Nature Challenge (CNC) held earlier in the year. The CNC is held each year in April with over 250 participating cities to observe and record nature in their area. The event organised by Los Angeles Natural history Museum and the Californian Science Academy. In 2020, four Australian cities, Adelaide, Geelong, Redlands and Sydney were involved in the four days BioBlitz with Australians recorded almost 25,000 animal, fungi, and plant observations.
Following the success of the CNC, the Australian cities involved have combined to organise the Great Southern BioBlitz to highlight the biodiversity of our country in the flourishing springtime when flowering plants and many creatures are more evident in rural and city environments.
The GSB organising committee is also eager to have as more many people from Perth involved in this event where people participating at each location are striving to find and photograph as many species as possible within the event time frame. The event has proven to be a great way to engage people about nature and to learn about the animals and plant in their area.
The event will be held from Friday 25 September till the end of Monday 28 September with survey areas based on local government boundaries. Each participating group can define its observation range as being one or more local government areas.

We look forward to your area being involved and please free to contact us by email.
