Backyard Species Discovery

Bush Blitz documents Australia’s vast biodiversity through expeditions to remote locations. Due to COVID-19, these expeditions are temporarily on hold and, with many of us looking for fun things to do at home, Bush Blitz is coordinating a virtual expedition that everyone can join! Although we can’t promise you’ll find a new species, this citizen science project will enable you to discover some amazing plants and animals living in your own backyard, whilst contributing valuable data to Australia’s biodiversity databases.

As part of this virtual initiative, we have included loads of resources for Teachers on the Bush Blitz Backyard Species Discovery Education site, such as:

  • quick-start guides
  • species identification resources
  • how this project links with the Australian Curriculum
  • related lesson plans and activities
  • many other great education resources
