Property Based Reporting
Bush Blitz compiles reports for each field expedition undertaken. The purpose of these reports is to inform land managers and stakeholders about the species present on the properties surveyed. The reports provide aggregated information about new records for the property, putative new species, Rare and Threatened species, and exotic and pest species. Also included is some discussion that is considered of interest for property level conservation planning. Locational data is available to land managers on request.

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.
