What is a “bioblitz”?

A bioblitz is a joint effort between citizens and scientists to record a wide variety of species in a specific place and over a certain period of time. Bioblitzes are a way to connect people to the environment in which they live. In this way details that normally are unnoticed become magnified. At the same time, useful data for science and species conservation are collected.

A global event

On September 23-24-25, people from all over the world explore their local rivers together with friends and family. Every year the community who care about rivers enlarges.

The observed species are then identifiedand validated with the help of the global iNaturalist community.
