Marine Bioblitz of the Byron Bay Region

Calling all divers, snorkelers, beach walkers, surfers, swimmers, bird lovers, fishers, paddlers and rock pool enthusiasts from Brunswick Heads to Ballina!
Join our Marine Bioblitz of the Byron Bay Region between 8th -17th March 2024 and help us discover and document the diversity of marine and coastal species that call it home! We will kick off the Bioblitz with a launch and information evening on 7th March at Common People, Bangalow from 6-8:30pm.
The Marine Bioblitz is an opportunity for all members of the community to get involved as citizen scientists and document the rich biodiversity in our marine and coastal habitats. This ten-day community driven survey of marine life along our coastal waterways will generate a valuable record of our local biodiversity within the Byron Bay Hope Spot. Observations will provide a snapshot of species found across marine habitats at this time of year, which has never been done in our area before.
It’s super easy to participate! Just register on our Humanitix event page, snap a photo within the region from March 8 - 17th, and upload it to iNaturalist.
You can join in one of the many organised events over the 10-days or simply make your own observations and record them onto our iNaturalist project.
This is the first initiative for our brand new Byron Bay Hope Spot Ocean Champions program supported by a grant from Patagonia’a 1% for the Planet program.

The event is finished.
