The Bob Brown Foundation would like to invite you to participate in a Tarkine BioBlitz,

A BioBlitz is a festival of science in nature. In one of the world’s last wild places, the Tarkine, our BioBlitz will discover and record as many living things as possible over a weekend. BioBlitzes are fun, educational and meaningful to the community, naturalists and scientists alike. This is an event where everyone can explore, learn and contribute to our knowledge of biodiversity. Through BioBlitz we will together create a significant resource of biodiversity data and have an opportunity to share knowledge and enthusiasm for the natural world and one of the last wild places on the planet, the Tarkine.

Tarkine BioBlitz will be held over 72 hours. You are welcome to join us from Thursday 19 Nov to Sunday 22 Nov, or any time in between. On Friday 21 Nov we will be inviting school groups to join the BioBlitz and Saturday and Sunday will be open to the public to participate. Our base camp for the duration of the event will be at the Riverbend Youth Centre, approximately 6km south of Smithton. Accommodation options include tent camping, dormitories and some more private facilities.  We will be travelling out each day to the Tarkine locations and regrouping in the evening at the base camp to share food, discoveries and stories.
