Count Predatory Birds at a BioBlitz in Adelaide


A BioBlitz is a community event where the public works with scientists to observe and record the plant, animal and insect life at a location. The BioBlitz usually takes place over a short period of time, typically 1-2 days, and often involves naturalists and other specialists in the species being observed.

A BioBlitz in Adelaide has plenty of free things to do for people of all ages. It's educational, fun for kids, and gives participants an opportunity to learn a great deal about the natural environment directly from experts. Depending on the location of the BioBlitz, it may be fish and marine creatures, birds, insects, or native plants and animals that are being surveyed.

What's special about a BioBlitz is that it's a unique and enjoyable way to learn a great deal about a location - straight from the experts, and free of charge. It's real life nature play for all ages.

The BioBlitz in Adelaide program is being hosted by the Discovery Circle at the University of South Australia. It's a free event open to all ages, but you must register in advance to take part. Each session has a limit on the number of participants, but there are many different things to see and do to choose from.

Learn About Marine Life at BioBlitz in Adelaide


Past BioBlitz - Hallett Cove
On Friday November 13 and Saturday November 14 Discovery Circle at the University of South Australia is holding a BioBlitz Hallett Cove at Hallett Cove Beach, just near the Hallett Cove Conservation Park.

The rich and largely unspoiled environment of the Encounter Marine Park offers many opportunities to get up close to the local flora and fauna at the beautiful Hallett Cove beach.

A section of fun things to do on Friday afternoon and evening include sessions with beach walks such as Be a beach Detective, Snorkelling Surveys, Moth Trapping and Bat Searches. Take a look at the night sky and learn how it was interpreted by the original inhabitants of the land in The Aboriginal Night Sky.

On Saturday, take a Flora and Fauna Walk in Hallett Cove Conservation Park, do the Scuba Survey (qualified divers only), or hunt for starfish and sea urchins in the intertidal pools on the Intertidal Survey.

For the full program of activities at BioBlitz Hallett Cove see the registration web page, but do book early if you want to take part. This free event will be massive fun for kids as well as adults, so some sessions will be booked out quickly.

The BioBlitz Base Camp is at the Boatshed Cafe, a very popular place to stop before a walk on the beach. All you need to know is on the BioBlitz Hallett Cove web page.

If you're not planning to join in one of the free things to do at BioBlitz Hallett Cove, you are still welcome to come along to the Boatshed Cafe where you can check out the wildlife on display, courtesy of Animals Anonymous and Bugs n Slugs.

Past BioBlitz - St Kilda
St Kilda north of Adelaide is renowned for its amazing adventure playground, and the St Kilda Tram Museum. There are so many activities for kids in the area that it is hard to persuade them to go home.

But St Kilda is also a place of natural beauty, a largely unspoiled beach where birds migrate from all over the world. It is also home to the St Kilda Mangrove Trail where wildlife of all sorts can live largely undisturbed.

On Friday November 27 and Saturday November 28, UniSA is holding BioBlitz St Kilda. It follows a similar approach to BioBlitz Hallett Cove, but will be focussed on finding out all about life in the St Kilda mangroves.

For free family entertainment and awesome activities for kids, BioBlitz beats them all!
