The Wheatbelt Natural Resource Management (NRM) and Dumbleyung Landcare will co-host the event and encourage all to come along and help conduct this biodiversity survey. Dumbleyung Landcare has been active in this area since 2000, working closely with landholders to have 150 kilometres of fencing erected; protecting 1500 hectares of remnant vegetation and planting 220,000 biodiversity seedlings and 37,000 Oil Mallee’s.
In addition to offering your time, the Wheatbelt NRM and Dumbleyung Landcare are also seeking experts in environmental science, ecology, natural history, agriculture, education and biodiversity, to be a voluntary team leader. A Team Leader will help lead small groups (up to 10 people) conduct surveys in the area and present a short summary on their findings.
The BioBlitz will be conducted over 24 hours, from noon on Saturday October 8 til noon on Sunday October 9, 2016. If you’d like to be involved in the BioBlitz or for more information, please contact Wheatbelt NRM’s Regional Landcare Facilitator Leigh Whisson on 9670 3136 or firstname.lastname@example.org
