12 Jun 🌏Citizen Science Backyard Bush Blitz
Last week, Jean introduced us to ‘Atlas of Living Australia Bingo’, exploring how we can play a game of bingo to discover the different species in our backyards or school grounds.
Further to this, we’ve heard of an awesome citizen science project you and your young scientists can be involved in to discover the little things that run the world through a ‘Backyard Bush Blitz’.
Bush Blitz is Australia’s largest species discovery program – they document Australia’s vast biodiversity through expeditions to remote locations. Due to COVID-19, Bush Blitz expeditions are temporarily on hold and, with many of us looking for fun things to do at home, Bush Blitz is coordinating a virtual expedition that everyone can join!
Grab a phone or camera, head outside and see what backyard species you can find! Plants, animals or fungi, each record contributes to scientists knowledge of Australia’s biodiversity.
