The 2008 Corrigin BioBlitz was the fifth community-based, collaborative, 24-hour biological survey organised by WWF-Australia (WWF) in the Avon River Basin. Professional and amateur biologists, ecologists and naturalists - working as volunteers for WWF - conducted fieldwork with members of the local Corrigin community to help them discover more about the faunal biodiversity in their very high conservation value local reserve. The data obtained during the BioBlitz provides a useful indicator of environmental quality and serves as a baseline for future monitoring and management of the reserves.
