UK City Nature Challenge

City Nature Challenge is an epic, global citizen science project to collect information about our local wildlife. In 2020 ten UK cities are collaborating with 200+ cities across the world to find and record as much wildlife as possible to help track how nature is bouncing back this spring!

To take part simply download the free iNaturalist app today and start sharing your wildlife sightings from your windows, gardens and during your daily outdoor exercise.
