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, threatened species, and exotic and pest species. Also included is discussion that is considered of interest for property level conservation planning. The locational data for survey sites and collected and observed specimens are available to land managers.

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.
