Great Southern Bioblitz

If you are out and about in the weekend of the 25-28th September, make your nature observations count by photographing what you see and uploading it to iNaturalist – the world’s largest biodiversity database. The Surf Coast region is a part of a ‘bioblitz’ for the whole of the southern hemisphere, in a friendly competition to see which place finds the most species! You will need an account for iNaturalist, and either a desktop PC to upload your observations to the website, or the app which can be downloaded onto your phone or tablet. Your observations will be looked at by other users and identifications will be suggested. It is a great citizen science platform for plant and animal identification.

For more, check out the iNaturalist website, which has tutorials to get you started.
