The 2002 Lake McDermott BioBlitz was a community-based, collaborative, 24-hour biological survey of the Lake McDermott Reserve in the Shire of Mount Marshall. Professional and amateur biologists, ecologists and naturalists - working as volunteers for WWF-Australia (WWF) - conducted fieldwork with members of the Bencubbin and Beacon communities to document the biodiversity of one of the region’s most significant local reserves. The data obtained during the BioBlitz is useful as an indicator of environmental quality, and provides baseline data for future monitoring and management of the Reserve.
