Springbrook BioBlitz

The 2020 Springbrook BioBlitz was a great success! Over 400 participants learnt from experts in the field on how to identify species and assisted in collecting data during 44 surveys.
A new addition this year was our workshop and presentation program, with 11 workshops and 17 presentations carried out over the weekend. This gave people the opportunity to learn about their favourite species even if they couldn’t secure a spot on a survey!

Watergum would like to thank all survey leaders, assistants, volunteers, data crew and committee members for their fantastic work throughout this 48 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.
