When expeditions were on hold due to COVID-19, the Bush Blitz team organised a virtual expedition to continue adding to our knowledge of Australian biodiversity while keeping everyone busy at home. The project has proved so successful, it will continue for the foreseeable future.
While we can’t promise you’ll find a new species, you will discover some amazing plants and animals living in your own backyard, learn to identify them with the help of Bush Blitz scientists and contribute valuable data to the Atlas of Living Australia.
As of 7 December 2022, we have 563 virtual expedition members, they have made 230,796 observations and 14,541 species have been identified.
