I have arrived at Birrigia for the ACT Bushblitz.

I am surrounded by biologists from institutions from across Australia, with a wide variety of interests ranging from plants to insects, frogs and reptiles. I am here with five teachers; Adriana and Oliver, both from Queensland; Cara from the Northern Territory; Alyce from Tasmania, and Mitch; a resident teacher at Birrigai.

We are also well catered for by staff from Earthwatch and BushBlitz.
