2019 Bio-Blitz Report

Dry and sunny weather, which seems to be the troubling normal for the RainForest recently, greeted the 30+ attendees of the 5th Annual Walbran Bio-Blitz. Held with gratitude on the traditional territory of the Pacheedaht  First Nation.

The event started with a circle and welcome from Elder Bill Jones and then with the help of biologists, naturalists and birders we set out into the forest for a series of guided hikes and the flora and fauna count.

Highlight from this year was a Dromadery Jumping Slug, pictured below, a very rare species that is Old Growth dependent. Again other new species to the Bio-Blitz were found this year and our understanding of this rare and special place continues to grow. The full list of this years species will be attached to this sites Archive Page

Thanks to everybody who made the journey and to Bill Jones, Juliet Pendery, James Holko and David Reidel. See you next year!
