‘Bio’ means ‘life’ and ‘Blitz’ means ‘to do something quickly and intensively’. Together they make ‘BioBlitz’, a collaborative race against the clock to discover as many species of plants, animals and fungi as possible, within a set location, over a defined time period (usually 24 hours).

This guide has been designed to support the running of BioBlitzes and similar wildlife events in the UK. It is aimed at those running a large-scale event but a BioBlitz doesn’t have to be big to be successful. If you would like to hold a smaller event, just select the ideas that are relevant to you.
