Total for 24 Hours - the Katikati Bioblitz outcome.

2311- the total number of species. There were also more than 150 more species sent by email that weren't picked up until after the 24 hours were past.
This is for a catchment of one smallish river.  However there were low numbers of some species, and some species expected were not found. The data collected is valuable. 


  1. I can't read the bar graph, and now I am intrigued - something is well over 900, but what is it? and how many somethings has it got that other somethings haven't got that gives it well over 900? - I can't even read the print with my big grandaddy magnifying glass. And some big long names on the bar graph haven't got anything! are they extinct??

    1. Alden - I was not able to attend, so the photos from the day are not mine. I think the large category is plants.

  2. The species count is, as of today July 8, over 3300.
