Brompton Cemetery, SW10 9UG

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at your local BioBlitz event. Our team of experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species of birds, bugs, plants and beasties as we can before the clock runs out. Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife. With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.

What’s happening

At Brompton Bioblitz you can explore the amazing Garden Cemetery as we give members of the public a chance to mingle with scientists to uncover some of the weird and wonderful wildlife living thereThis will be the first time a major count of species has taken place in Brompton Cemetery, and is one of several projects linked to the £6.2million National Lottery-funded Brompton Cemetery conservation scheme which will see the historic site undergo a major facelift to recreate the vision that Benjamin Baud originally designed in 1840.
