The Bush Blitz teacher resource booklet was produced by the Australian Science Teacher's Association (ASTA), in partnership with the Australian Biological Resource Study to provide background information for teachers on the Bush Blitz program. The booklet also includes supporting activities, projects and investigations for teachers to undertake with students from preschool through to senior secondary levels.

A booklet was sent to every Australian school as part of the 2010 National Science Week school kit but is now available to download. [PDF 6962kb]

2010 Top 10 New Species Competition

Pink hand fish

Ever heard of the Kimberley Froglet, the Opera House Barnacle or the Bandalup Buttercup? Probably not, as they were only discovered in 2009 by Australian species discovery scientists. In fact, these three new species are part of a group nominated by scientists as 'Australia's Top 10 New Species'.

School students were encouraged to vote on their favourite species in an opportunity to win great prizes whilst raising awareness of the unique species being discovered during our Bush Blitz surveys.

For information on the species involved and our lucky winners, please click here.

More information on the winners experiences can be found here.
