About the event

Tamar NRM is participating in the Great Southern BioBlitz in 2023 - the largest BioBlitz in the Southern Hemisphere!

What is a BioBlitz?

A Bioblitz is a snapshot study of a specific location, where scientists and the community work together to survey and record as many species of flora, fauna, fungi and aquatic life within a nominated timeframe. ​

Between the 24th to the 27th of November 2023 citizens young and old in the Tamar region can help record organisms during spring and showcase our beautiful biodiversity to the world.
