The Big Brum BioBlitz goes into Hibernation

Launched on the 26th May, the Big Brum BioBlitz was all about encouraging families, young people and adults to explore their natural environment and carry out their very own BioBlitz! As we were spending more time in our homes, nature was taking over our city, giving us chance to get involved in environmental science and record what was happening – and the people of Birmingham didn’t need much persuading! Our iNaturalist project page saw 620 new species identified during the BioBlitz! .
