48 hours to discover Cooloola’s nature

Cooloola BioBlitz is to be held in Rainbow Beach and you’re invited! Mark your calendars now for the weekend of May 17-19, for the Cooloola BioBlitz based in Rainbow Beach and the surrounding areas.

Registration is from 3.30pm on Friday, closing on Sunday May 19 at 3.30pm.

An exciting BioBlitz aimed at tracking down and identifying as many animals, plants and other living natural resources as possible is being planned for northern Cooloola in May.

We need you! This 48 hour BioBlitz is open for teens to retirees. No natural history expertise is required because there will be very experienced mentors and leaders accompanying all the teams on their field excursions to help find, identify and document as many species as possible and provide information.

Last year Cooloola Coastcare and Bioblitz volunteers discovered 38 NEW species unknown to science!

Organisers have identified specific habitats for close scrutiny by the various teams that range from the seashore to the high dunes, from the rainforest to the wallum heathlands and from the fens to the mangroves.

It is a wonderful time of the year to be out exploring nature so follow this event on FaceBook and check this website: www.cooloolacoastcare.org.au for more!
