Bioblitz tracks flora and fauna

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

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.
