THE Custodians of Rare and Endangered Wildflowers (Crew) are holding a Bioblitz on Saturday, December 1 at the Bill Barnes Crane Nature Reserve in Nottingham Road.

A Bioblitz sees experts and members of the public working together to survey a natural area. They seek, identify and record as many species as possible in a single day.

Photographs are loaded onto the recently launched iSpot portal to encourage sharing of observations and identifications across the broad spectrum of biodiversity. (

South Africa’s biodiversity is one of the richest in the world and there is plenty of evidence of that in the grasslands and wetlands at the Bill Barnes Crane Nature Reserve. To take part in a Bioblitz, one just needs to be a keen nature enthusiast who wants to assist Sanbi Crew in monitoring South Africa’s plants and animals and preserving our natural heritage.

If you are interested in attending please contact Nikki Brighton at info@midlandsconser or Suvarna Parbhoo on
