A week-long Bio-blitz has just finished at Chingarrup Sanctuary, in the Fitz-Stirling section of Gondwana Link. Owners Eddy and Donna Wajon have hosted a procession of studious visitors, with great knowledge gained across a range of disciplines - cultural sites recorded and mapped, even more orchids recorded, river pool bathymetry mapped, aquatic ecology benchmarked, wildflower surveys and even more orchids recorded, again. Some highlights of the week have been captured on film by Craig Carter and Basil Schur from Green Skills, including a focus for Basil's 'Living Lakes of Gondwana Link' program. This will be available on YouTube soon (did we mention Eddy and Donna found even more orchid species on the block?).
