Learn how TMAG’s zoologists and botanists are discovering new species in Tasmania as part of the Bush Blitz Program, and see some wonderful images of these fascinating plants and animals.

This exhibition is proudly supported by the Bush Blitz Program, a partnership between the Australian Government, BHP Billiton Sustainable Communities and Earthwatch Australia.
