Austinville BioBlitz

The 2019 Austinville BioBlitz was a great success! Over 230 participants learnt from experts in the field on how to identify species and assisted in collected data during 37 surveys.

Watergum would like to thank all survey leaders, assistants, volunteers, data crew and committee members for their fantastic work throughout this 24 hour event. Watergum would furthermore like to extend its thanks to the wonderful sponsors who made this event possible. Thank you for supporting Australian native species.
