Will you be the next person to discover a new species on the Cooloola Coast?

Over 78 new species, unknown to science, have already been discovered in the last two BioBlitzes held in Rainbow Beach.

Cooloola Coastcare and the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation will be hosting another BioBlitz on the weekend of 20-22 March 2020 with the support of a Queensland Government Citizen Science Grant.

It is a wonderful opportunity for teens and adults to get outdoors into the National Park and other protected areas with expert scientists as your guides.

You can help us collect photos of every living thing as you learn about all the creatures, plants and fungi in our region.

Use your phone or camera to record them and your guides will teach you about identifying them and learning their role in our environment.

Base Camp will be the Rainbow Beach Community Hall with specialists in frogs, birds, fungi, botany, insects and orchids coming from all over Australia to lead the daily field trips.

Presentations about the animals and plants in the region in the evenings are also open to the public.
