Cuilcagh Mountain Park, Marble Arch Caves Unesco Global Geopark, BT92 1EW

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 the Cuilcagh Mountain Park BioBlitz you can explore the amazing variety of habitats that surround Cuilcagh Mountain as we try and record as many species as we can within one of Northern Irelands greatest areas of wilderness. With bogs, mountains, forests and grasslands there is so much to find, so we need all the help we can get!

Drop in and see us on the day for some amazing activities including:
Wildflower walk, moth trapping, competitions, camera traps, bug hunting, bat walk, and stalls for information and membership.
