Great Southern BioBlitz

The ‘Great Southern BioBlitz’, or ‘GSB’ for short; an international period of intense biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within designated areas across the Southern Hemisphere in Spring.

The purpose of this event is to highlight both the immense biodiversity spread across the Southern Hemisphere in the flourishing springtime, as well as to engage the public in science and nature learning.

St. Kilda Mangrove Survey

The tidal wetlands surrounding the St. Kilda Mangrove Boardwalk have been adversely affected since mid-2020.

 

Nearby decommissioned gypsum ponds that were filled with hyper-saline brines. Gypsum, lining the old ponds, are suspected to have degraded after sitting empty for seven years. It appears the ponds are leaking and mobilising acidic materials from underneath the gypsum crust. There appears to be no effort to monitor the area or efforts to mitigate any effects of the salt fields.

Here, we have set up a citizen science project to facilitate monitoring of the forest and its recovery.
