Your guide to Bioblitz

Do your part for urban diversity. Become an citizen scientist and help us record as many living things as possible from 13th to 14th April.

Bioblitz brings together scientists, naturalists and community members to help us learn more about the creatures living in our city. It’s educational and heaps of fun, with workshops, science activities, lectures and bike safaris.

On the spooky Friday the 13th, help survey microbats that fill the sky when the sun goes down. Or join one of the spotlighting surveys to find out what animals go bump in the dark!

Early risers can find out what birds are singing in the dawn chorus at Sydney Park.

Bring the kids to the Bioblitz Hub, the base camp for all activities, where identifications and data recording takes place. There are loads of scientists to chat to, microscopes to use and interesting finds on display. It’s also the place to meet and learn about wonderful native animals with Taronga Zoo experts.

Help us find what animals are inside hollows and nesting boxes with a camera on a stick.

Unleash your creative side and learn how to draw plants.
