Great Southern Bioblitz 2022

Still a few months out - please add 28-31 October 2022 to your diaries.
All observations recorded in Lake Macquarie LGA during the time frame will be included in the Lake Mac City project.
It would be fantastic to have more people involved ..... so your challenge , if you choose to do so, is to encourage others to start getting involved in iNaturalist in the lead up. :)
It is always exciting to see what everyone has seen whether it is over a few hours or a couple of days.

Great Southern Bioblitz 2021 starts in 4 days

It runs from 22-25 October - 4 days (and nights)
Any image recorded in the Lake Macquarie LGA during the GSB time frame will be automatically linked into the project even if you are not following the project or a member.
Tip ✍️double check your location radius fits within our LGA

It's good practice to take a couple of images eg plants- different angle, leaf, flower, entire plant and upload as a single record.

Any LIVING THING (excluding domestic animals or garden plantings) recorded as located within Lake Macquarie LGA and in the GSB time frame will automatically be added to 'our' Lake Mac City project https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/great-southern-bioblitz-2021-lake-mac-city
