Bioblitz tracks flora and fauna
THE Blackwood Basin Group held its first Bioblitz in Greenbushes last month as a way to record a snapshot of the natural life around Schwenke’s Dam.
Organised by Margaret Jakobson on behalf of the group, the Bioblitz was funded by Talison Lithium, Global Advanced Metals and a State Government grant.
Almost 30 people participated in the event on September 22, which saw people split into three groups to record as many invertebrates, birds and vegetation across eight hours.
Within the next few months, all the collected data will be collated into a report that will be available for viewing.
