Calling all GSB Organisers for 2023

Updated: May 18, 2023

The Great Southern BioBlitz is an exciting event that brings together nature enthusiasts, citizen scientists, and professionals to document the incredible biodiversity of the Great Southern hemisphere. The event is a great opportunity to learn more about the natural environment, meet like-minded people, and contribute to important conservation efforts.

One of the great things about the Great Southern BioBlitz is that it's open to anyone, regardless of their level of experience. Whether you're a seasoned naturalist or simply curious about the natural world, there's something for everyone at this event.

This year the event will be held from the 24-27th of November so save the date! The Great Southern BioBlitz is part of a larger global movement of citizen science, where members of the public can get involved in scientific research and contribute to important conservation efforts. This is done through the iNaturalist platform, a powerful tool that allows anyone to document the flora and fauna in their local area and share their findings with a global community of scientists and nature enthusiasts.


Organising a Great Southern BioBlitz event in your local area is a great way to connect with the natural environment, learn more about the biodiversity in your area, and contribute to important conservation efforts. By creating a project on iNaturalist, you can invite others in your local community to join you in documenting the flora and fauna in your area. This is a great way to build a community of like-minded people, while also contributing to a growing database of biodiversity information.

 
 

Previous Great Southern BioBlitz events have been a huge success, with participants documenting a wide variety of plant and animal species. In 2022, the event was held in 25 countries, and was attended by over 6, 500 people. Participants were able to document over 24, 000 species, including rare orchids, colourful birdlife, and a wide variety of insect species. This included a wide variety of plant species, as well as birdlife, reptiles, and insects.


In conclusion, the Great Southern BioBlitz is a fantastic event that brings together nature enthusiasts and citizen scientists to document the incredible biodiversity of the Great Southern region. Organising a Great Southern BioBlitz event in your local area is a great way to connect with the natural environment, learn more about the biodiversity in your area, and contribute to important conservation efforts. By using the iNaturalist platform, you can easily create and join projects in your local area, connecting with like-minded people and contributing to a growing database of biodiversity information. So why not get involved and help make a difference?
