What exactly is the Sunshine Coast BioBlitz?
A BioBlitz is a citizen science-led intensive biological survey, centred around encapsulating the biodiversity of an area. From beginner to expert, there will be something for everyone!
Learn how to identify flora, fauna, fungi and more through various workshops. Watch demonstrations on thermal drone imaging, detection dogs and motion cameras. Then, put your newfound knowledge to work through field surveys alongside your peers and experts.
The aim of the event is to connect citizen science with industry professionals, whilst collecting data to greater understand the biodiversity of our biosphere and greater inform future conservation action. New species and range extensions have been also been recorded through these BioBlitz surveys.
