About the event
SEE IT, SNAP IT, SHARE IT!
On October 21 and 22, be part of Bribie Island's next Biodiversity Survey!
Head out with your camera, phone and the iNaturalist app (download for free) and find anything living (or evidence of a living thing like a feather, nest, poo, dead animal…) Look for plants, animals, insects, take a photo or record a sound and upload to iNaturalist.
BioBlitz is happening EVERYWHERE around the island over the Saturday and Sunday of the upcoming Bribie Island Nature Festival weekend. You can BioBlitz in a park, on the beach, in the National Park or within the surrounding waters of Pumicestone Passage and the Marine Park... even down the main street or in your own backyard!
The data collected and shared via the iNaturalist app is used by scientists to help understand, protect and conserve nature. Bribie Island is an Island of high conservation value with rich biological diversity. However, more observations data is required to fully understand and protect Bribie Island’s biodiversity for the future!
We'll have a pop-up info tent located next to The Bribie Island Seaside Museum both Saturday and Sunday mornings if you need tips on locations or using iNaturalist.
