BioBlitz

What

Join an epic race for wildlife this September as citizens across Europe take part in the worlds’ first 48 hour continental BioBlitz!

Nature is vitally important, and nature is in trouble, but we can all help with nature’s recovery by helping fill in the gaps in what we know about the species on our doorsteps. By looking out for wildlife in your own neighbourhood, you can support vital conservation research whilst connecting with nature and enjoying the outdoors.

That is why this September, researchers, school groups, citizens and wildlife enthusiasts across the continent are coming together in a race against the clock to put nature on the map, submitting photos and observations of wildlife in their neighbourhoods through the free, easy to use iNaturalist mobile phone app.

The BioBlitz is part of INTERSECTIONS an international collaboration for European Researchers Night and we are looking for organisations and community leaders across Europe to help get your local communities involved.

Where

Your very own back garden/balcony, local park, or weeds in the pavement cracks! Anywhere where you see nature, snap it up and upload it to the iNaturalist app

When

24th and 25th September 2021

Admissions
