BioBlitz 2016 has concluded

April 29, 2016

Thank you to everyone who participated in Melbourne BioBlitz 2016. Through the 24 hour BioBlitz events on 4 to 5 March at Royal Park, Westgate Park, Carlton Gardens, Royal Botanic Gardens and the University of Melbourne Parkville Campus, City of Melbourne hosted 26 events, with 36 survey leaders from 17 partner organizations and many more volunteers. Close to 750 members of the public joined the activities at the different sites across the city.

We also had many people participating by organising their own Backyard BioBlitz. We’ve received 113 sightings on Participate Melbourne and over 800 sightings on BowerBird. It’s been an absolute delight and privilege for us to meet many of the people who have been involved and all the little creatures that were spotted in the city.

We’re currently analysing the data and will share final results and announce the winners of the photo competition in May 2016. In the meantime, please contact us at with any questions.
