1,007 species recorded in Rocky Point survey

“A team of more than 140 naturalists set off to document every species of plant, insect, animal, bird and fish that could be found on the premises. A total of 1,007 species had been recorded. The total exceeded the 973 average count for the past 15 annual ‘BioBlitzes’ and greater than what he expected for an area as small as Rocky Point – the annual surveys are usually done on tracts larger than the Point’s 124 acres – and expected in an area that had been so extensively developed.”
