Great Southern Bioblitz

The Great Southern BioBlitz is an international period of intense biological surveying in an attempt to record all living species within several designated project areas across the Southern Hemisphere.

As part of this, the Nangak Tamboree Wildlife Sanctuary at our Bundoora campus will be once again be running a project to discover as many living things as possible throughout the Nangak Tamboree corridor at La Trobe University, Darebin Creek corridor and throughout the Cities of Darebin and Banyule.
