Wombeyan Caves BioBlitz

IMPORTANT: Don't forget to book your camping! Bookings close on Tuesday 31 October.

Join us for a weekend of discovery and help find out what species call the beautiful Wombeyan Caves home. We are looking for everything and anything: from Gliders to Orchids, and all the species in between! For more information, FAQs or to book tickets, visit our Eventbrite page: www.wombeyancavesbioblitz.eventbrite.com.au

We will be running wildlife and plant surveys from Friday night, but Saturday is when the main BioBlitz action and fun will happen. We will be searching for a variety of plants and animals including: birds, mammals, reptiles, frogs and insects. At our BioBlitz hub on Saturday, we will also have a variety of bio-educational activities for children – including the Taronga Zoo-mobile!

This is a family-friendly, all ages and inclusive event. If you have any questions about which activities are suitable for you (e.g. wheelchair access) please get in contact with event organisers (margotl@npansw.org.au). You can join as many (or as few!) survey groups as you wish. You will be in safe hands! Trained ecologists, conservationists and biologists will lead groups on each survey. Back at home-base, we'll have survey counting, recording and all-ages activities to keep the keenest (and youngest) biologists entertained.

Camping is recommended if you want to participate in dawn or after-dark fauna surveys. If you want to stay the night, camping sites and facilities are available at the magical Wombeyan Caves campground for a small fee ($11/head/night, bookings via www.wombeyancavesbioblitz.eventbrite.com.au).


This bioblitz is supported by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife on behalf of the K2W Partnership with funding through the NSW Environmental Trust’s Bushconnect program - 'Restoring the Glideways of the K2W Link’ project.
