Fraser Island is a World Heritage site recognised as an outstanding example of significant ongoing biological processes.
The BioBlitz will bring specialists and community volunteers together for a concentrated effort of biologically surveying six dune systems on K'Gari (Fraser Island) from the beach to Lake Boomajin and Lake Birrabeen. The aim is to increase our understanding of the natural environment including those that slither, swim, hop, walk, crawl or fly and the plants and fungi that support these ecosystems.
We are seeking specialists or people with biological expertise to identify what is out there and volunteers willing to assist. Come for the week (28 November–4 December 2016) or just for a long weekend (2–4 December) to Dilli Village, Fraser Island.
- We believe that there are many new species waiting to be discovered.
- Interact closely with other specialists, gain new knowledge and share your expertise with the Fraser Island community and help establish baseline natural resources data for the designated study area.
