Biologic Senior Zoologist, Ryan Ellis, is currently in the Cape Range of Western Australia as part of the Cape Range Bush Blitz. Bush Blitz is a continent-wide biodiversity discovery partnership between the Australian Government, BHP and Earthwatch Australia, with the main focus being searching for new species of plants and animals, documenting biodiversity (including pest species) and providing data to land managers. We will be posting photos from Ryan over the coming week.
