Brilliant Seventh Edition of BioBlitzBcn!

20160417_104447Between April 15th and 17th, 2016, the Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona, in partnership with the Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility Area of Barcelona Council and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona hosted the seventh edition of BioBlitzBcn. Nearly 1000 scientists, naturalists and volunteers, raced against clock to identify as many species as possible at the Montjuïc Hill and the adjacent Botanical Garden in Barcelona. By the end of the blitz, 249 species were identified, excluding most insects that need to be identified at the laboratory. What a great succes!

Let It Grow aims to run a pan-European biodiversity measurement at participating zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens and science centres on May 22, 2016; the International Day for Biological Diversity. Care to join us?

The Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona has shared a report on the resources page about BioBlitzBcn. There are also BioBlitz guidelines available in the communication elements of the campaign resources.
