Bush Blitz Day 2: Tuesday 16th February

Today’s preparations began around 6:15am with a quick shower, breakfast and making lunch to take on our adventures. The BushBlitz teachers were divided amongst the scientists to help them with their collecting. Mary-Ann and I were assigned to Fiona, a marine algae expert and Kirrily, a marine invertebrate expert.

Bush Blitz Day 1: Monday 15th February

Today we spent the morning making sure everyone was well prepared for the week ahead – with the right clothes, the right shoes and all the right gear. The weather can change very quickly on Bruny Island from fine and mild one minute to cold, windy and rainy the next.
