Come along to a MicroBlitz event.
MicroBlitz is citizen science for everyone. We all have a vested interest in understanding and protecting our environment, and with MicroBlitz everybody has the opportunity to get involved in doing just that. That’s why we organise and participate in a range of events in the WA community – to spread the word about our research and encourage people to become a MicroBlitzer.
