Applicants from Johannesburg, Pretoria, Danielskuil, Cape Town as well as Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape will be spending 10 hours out in the field collecting valuable data for the Animal Demography Unit of the University of Cape Town.  Apart from recording a list of birds seen in a 9km x 9km pentad, they will also be photographing records for the various Virtual Museums, i.e. Spiders, Scorpions, Mammals, reptiles etc.



The reason for having a BioBash in an area such as Namaqualand is because it is vastly under-atlased and a number of species have been added to our list since the start of the initial BioBash 2 years ago.  This specific BioBash in July will be the first winter one, the others all having been done in spring, summer and autumn.
