THE RACE IS ON!

City regions across the UK

 26th – 29th April 2019

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.

In 2018 65 cities on five continents, including three city regions across the UK, joined in the race by sending in their wildlife sightings. Observations counted towards local, national and international efforts to learn about and protect regions’ amazing wildlife.

City Nature Challenge will return in 2019 between 26th – 29th April. A free resource will soon be available on this page which will tell you everything you need to know on how you can register and take part during the world’s most ambitious citizen science project!

Whether you’ve run a BioBlitz before, or you’re look to organise your first citizen science projects, City Nature Challenge is a new and exciting way to engage local residents with the wildlife in your area!

If you would like to keep up to date with this project or get a “hot of the press” version of the resource, then make sure you sign up to the BioBlitz UK newsletter.
