A bioblitz brings together expert naturalists and taxonomic scientists to inventory as many species as possible in a particular area in a set amount of time, typically over 24 hours. The species records are compiled into a single data set of the biodiversity in that location at that point in time.
Often, the experts are joined by interested members of the general public for a community-style bioblitz, which blends scientific inventory, guided educational activities and nature programming so that everyone can contribute to real science, while connecting with nature in a personally meaningful experience.
Immerse yourself in the wonders of nature and the joy of scientific discovery. Come be a part of BioBlitz Canada 150. Make your plans early and be one of thousands of Canadians who’ll take part in BioBlitz Canada 150 – your chance to become a “citizen scientist” and work alongside conservationists and specialists in a national inventory of Canadian species. Join us as we explore dozens of ecologically important areas across Canada, noting all the existing species – and perhaps discovering new ones! It’s Canada’s “nature selfie,” and you’re invited!
