The 2016 Tarin Rock BioBlitz was the eleventh BioBlitz held in the Wheatbelt and was jointly organised by Wheatbelt NRM and the Dumbleyung Landcare Zone. The collaborative, community-based, biological survey was held over 24 hours during the 8–9th October 2016 based around Tarin Rock and North Tarin Rock Nature Reserves. Surveys were also conducted in a nearby unnamed Nature Reserve (Res# 38379). Professional and amateur biologists, ecologists and naturalists worked together as ‘citizen scientists’, conducting fieldwork with local community members and participants from across the South West, to discover more about this area’s high conservation value bushland and biodiversity.
