Report on the recent Sydney Naturalists Bioblitz – 14-15 April from Elliiot Connor

Ku-ring-gai Bioblitz 14th-15th April

 

On the weekend of the 14th and 15th of April, Elliot Connor, a young nature enthusiast from Mosman, organized a bioblitz event around the Kalkari Discovery Centre in Ku-ring-gai National Park. The aim of this was to identify as many species as possible (covering all forms of life) within the area of the discovery centre and document them using the online nature observation recording platform iNaturalist (linked to ALA). A total of eleven groups of people took part over the course of the event, totalling 100 species and 167 observations. A particular highlight of the event was a very majestic white-bellied sea eagle circling close overhead on the Sunday.

Following on from this event, Elliot is forming a new informal nature club in the Sydney area. Hoping to improve on existing organizations through the bringing together of young and old, regular field trips, free membership, and a more relaxed and informal atmosphere in which a general love for the natural world can be expressed and explored, all are invited to join. The currently named ‘Sydney Naturalists’ group will meet on the last Sunday of every month in one of several local areas chosen for their wildlife, beginning on 24th June.

Email Elliot at elliotconnor212@yahoo.com.au to join, and please also join the existing Sydney Naturalists project on iNaturalist (there are a lot of fishes currently): https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/sydney-naturalists
