BioBlitz 2012

It’s fascinating, fun, free, family-friendly event.

When?

Friday 30th March 9 am – 11 pm

Saturday 31st March 7 am – 5 pm.

Where?

Auckland Botanic Gardens, Manurewa. The search area will include the adjoining Totara Park.

You can reach the BioBlitz base camp in two ways: 1) park down by the Botanic Gardens visitor centre and walk across (follow the signs), or 2) park on Everglade Drive via Manakau / Redoubt Road motorway off-ramp, and walk in through the northern entrance to the Gardens (this is closest but the gate will be closed to cars).

Who can come?

All welcome! However, please keep the following in mind:

  • ‘Walk & talk’: If you intend going on a ‘walk & talk’ with a scientist, please wear sensible shoes and clothes.
  • After dark: If you are coming on one of the ‘after dark’ excursions, please wear sensible warm clothes and bring a torch (families should bring several torches if possible).
  • Specialist scientific equipment is loaned especially for the event. This equipment is very expensive and should be treated with care and respect at all times.
  • Young children should be supervised by an adult but free to have some fun.
  • Dogs should be on leads and supervised by an adult.
  • The Botanic Gardens and all that lives there must be treated with care and consideration.
