Unleash your inner scientist with 3 days of wildlife surveys.
You can be part of the IVP team helping to organise this event.
The focus will be on Koalas, Quolls, Phascogales, Frogs, Gliders and some cave life. There will be several ecologists in the team and under their guidance you will: check for platypus in the morning, look for scats and tree hollows in the daytime, learn how to record sightings, go spotlighting in the evening.
For IVP volunteers will help with registrations and recording of sightings, as well as take part in the bio-blitz. The work will commence at 10am on Friday and finish around 4pm on Sunday. IVP can provide transport from Mt. Victoria Station so let us know if you need this. Other options if you don’t have a car are here: http://www.jenolancaves.org.au/visitor-info/getting-here/
Cost for IVP volunteers: $20, $10 for students, includes dorm style accommodation and food, group leader, extra activities and hanging out with ecologists. You must be a current member of IVP to be covered by insurance for this event.

You can also simply register as a member of the public to take part in the bio-blitz on Saturday or Sunday. For that you register through to the Jenolan Caves website.
