Bermagui Bioblitz exhibition at Bermagui Fishermen’s Co-op from 18th August

Everyone is invited

For those who took part and everyone who would like to see what happened during the Bioblitz week-end

The Exhibition is an opportunity to thank all Bioblitz participants and volunteers, and to celebrate all the results – over 1600 records so far and still counting! The Opening will also provide a chance to hear some of the stories from the Bioblitz and to see the array of wonderful photos taken during the 30 hours, from dawn in the bush to night time underwater. Equipment used in the surveys and results of the surveys will be on show.

About the Bermagui Bioblitz: Over the 30 hours of the survey more than 200 people and 60 school students were engaged on 42 different surveys of all the living things that could be found from clifftop plants, to nocturnal marsupials and frogs, shell death assemblages and night time scuba and snorkel searches and many more. Local and visiting naturalists and scientists led the surveys and generously shared their expertise with the many local and visiting enthusiasts who were keen to explore this small location with many different habitats.

The collected and validated occurrence records from the Bioblitz are being added to the Atlas of Coastal Wilderness biodiversity database and the national Atlas of Living Australia database. See our www.atlasoflife.org.au and the national www.ala.org.au
