WCC is back out at Rainbow Beach for Cooloola BioBlitz 2019, organised by Cooloola Coast Care Inc. and the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation. Cooloola BioBlitz is a weekend of biological survey to record as many of the living species as possible in the Cooloola Sands region, and this second survey is sure to be a blast!

We chat with some of the awesome scientific team leaders and organisers about their weekend full of discoveries and citizen science action.

Behind the scenes recording 'Wildlife, Cake and Cocktails' podcast at the 2019 Cooloola BioBlitz. Tucked away in a 'quiet' spot in the hall. (That's potentially a specimen of a new species on the floor there beside botanist Lui Weber's foot.)
