7 days till the start of the BioBlitz!

Hey everyone,

Hope you've been able to enjoy some of the lovely springtime weather.
With 7 days to go before the Great Southern BioBlitz with Maroondah City Council, I thought it would be a great time to showcase some of the amazing biodivesity found across Maroondah currently, there are just under 300 observers in Maroondah City Council and over 600 iNaturalists that help identify local observations, which is fantastic.

So please feel free to keep making observations and helping others identify their observations, all in the name of science of course. Here are some of the people who are making great observations around Maroondah @mandapanda87 @suz1966 @scoutsvictoria @rjennion @anthonybigelow @jody_lawson @bushbandit @widebrownland @willharper @bloogs

Just over 1 day to go!

Hello all!

Thanks for joining our project and if you haven’t, please feel free to join :)
We've got some beautiful spring weather currently and over the next few days. So, I'd like to share again some of the wonderful biodiversity that has been captured across Maroondah in the past week!
Currently we are sitting on 5,672 observations for "Nature in Maroondah", I wonder if we can hit over 6000 by Monday the 25th with the help of the Great Southern BioBlitz? That would be excellent.

If you have any friends of family around Maroondah, please share the messaging about the BioBlitz. It's such a valuable citizen science event and incredibly enjoyable if I say so myself.

Here's some great observations from Maroondah!
Thanks to @awmccutcheon, @iandb, @elhar4, @timothy162 , @seedygirl, @zest4life, @widebrownland, @markiemark , @suz1966 and @bbdown

Less than 24 hours to go!

Hello again!
In the lead up to the BioBlitz starting, it would be a great time to share what was observed during 2020's months of Spring to see what was a seen last year! Spring is always exciting as you can see pops of colour appear throughout natural areas, so every piece of biodiversity you can observe is like its own little prize.
Here's some of the amazing observations made during September and October 2020 to get you excited for the BioBlitz.
Thank you to all the observers, identifiers and citizen scientists out there 😊
If you have joined our project, thank you! If you haven’t, please feel free to join and happy observing!

Let's get exictied for the 4 day BioBlitz period (22nd-25th, October)!

Thank you to the following observers for their citizen science contributions from spring 2020:
