All data collected as part of Bush Blitz will be collated each year into an annual report on the state of knowledge of approximately 20,000 species in the reserve system across Australia.
The first-ever report on the biodiversity conserved within Australia’s reserve system was prepared to provide a baseline for the Bush Blitz program.
BHP Billiton joins Australia’s leading biological collections, the Australian Government, state and territory governments, the Earthwatch Institute Australia and the Humane Society International in issuing this landmark report.
