Garden Bioblitz this week
The aim of a bioblitz is to find as many animal and
plant species as possible within a set location over
a defined time period - usually 24 hours.
Garden BioBlitz 2013 aims to get people across the
UK bioblitzing their own garden over one weekend.
Domestic gardens cover a vast area of the UK and
they are possibly the largest un-recorded habitat in
the country. Scientists and conservationists want to
know what’s living in our gardens and the only way to
do this is through citizen science - that’s you recording
what’s in your garden and logging the results.
This year Garden BioBlitz takes place on 1-2 June
and is going nationwide for the first time following
a successful trial run in 2012.
It’s a great opportunity for you and your family to
discover what’s wild in your garden and also make
a scientific contribution.
