THE RACE IS ON!
Bristol & Bath | London | Plymouth
27-30 APRIL 2018
Which city on Earth has the most wildlife and the most nature loving citizens? Help show the world how amazing the UK is for people and nature by joining an epic contest: to discover and record as much wildlife as possible over 4 days.
Competing with 65 cities on five continents, three city regions across the UK need you to join in the race by sending in your wildlife sightings over 27-30 April 2018. Your observations count towards local, national and international efforts to learn about and protect your regions’ amazing wildlife.
If you are visiting any of the three cities you can join families, schools and fellow naturalists embarking on a wildlife spotting spree in the garden, local park or walking trail by recording your findings on the iNaturalist app.

The Marine Biological Association and partners will be encouraging everyone to record wildlife from the Plymouth postcode area during the City Nature Challenge weekend, taking advantage of the city’s coastal position to add some marine and coastal species to their list.
