Update 9 Apr 2014 – BREAKING NEWS! Due to bad weather warnings of heavy rain with the possibility of thunderstorms, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the Panboola Bioblitz to May 16/17th
The wetlands are already saturated because of recent high rainfall and the further rain predicted will make the area impossible for many go the proposed surveys.
The Atlas of Life and Panboola Wetlands Trust team is very sorry about this and apologise to all of you who have signed up for surveys and made arrangements to join us.
Your bookings for surveys will be kept unless you tell us you are unable to come in May. Contact Libby Hepburn: 02 6495 0917 if you would like further information.
