If living near or travelling to a bushfire zone, now is your time to help.
We need to record as many species as we can around bushfire affected areas, to learn more about how species respond, find refuge and recover as they move back into burned areas where vegetation is re-growing.
Any and all sightings are valuable!
Earth Guardians is proud to be running the Australian Bushfire Recovery BioQuest as part of the annual Global BioQuest Competition. Please make sure you stay safe! Check the area has been declared safe to enter before you explore and help map the recovery of our biodiversity.
